Vis Mig and a check of the hedges

                 Plenty juv Pied Wagtails still on the cricket pitch



            View NE from Harp Lane
                       View E from Harp Lane
                                 An overgrown Harp Lane.

Just the usual on the cricket pitch this a.m. but with the Wheatear absent.
A surprise was a brief sighting of 2 Grey Partridge dash into long grass in the next field as well as 3 Mistle Thrush on a distant wall and 4 high overhead >W. Around 30 Mipits headed >SW whilst about another 30 were blogging..
A dinnertime dash to the top of the Dailies saw Swallows piling through >NW into the wind and plenty passerine activity lower down the Dailies in the new Hawthorns but no time to check it out.
A dog walk this evening down Harp Lane found a higher than usual number of Robins whilst 2 Dunnock, 1 Wren and a Willow Warbler were in the bushes + a few more Swallows over >NW.
