Soil Hill, last light visit

                                    Sun going down on the hill


             Nice cosy SEO roost in the long grass.

A last light visit to Soil Hill proved , as expected from NKs report, fruitless on both Snow Bunting and Twite.
A full trek around the mounds and top fields found 5 Grey Partridge and a single Skylark making it look as if the birds have moved on.
One interesting feature was findind a SEO roost hole in the long grass with droppings and pellets in the bottom.
On the way back to the road 6 Fieldfare came out of the roadside field and into the small plantation to roost.

I think I know where it is, if I do find it, I'll have a rummage.
I wonder how long it will be before we learn to leave that place alone on days like this!

Thing is Nigel, it keeps throwing little bits of temptation at us.

Thanks Tracy, no Sprawk pics this weekend then? It never comes when you,re set up ready for it.

No Brian!

We went to Cromwell Bottom and Brittany took some pics of the Redpoll etc but no Sparrowhawk. It will have to wait another bl**dy week whilst work gets in the way!

Pellets possibly taken by the local Weasel in that area ? Will save them for you if I come across any more.
