Last Sunday's field trip

A small group of us had a very enjoyable walk on Sunday. Our bird list
was: heron, mallard , buzzard, kite, pheasant, woodpigeon, stock dove,
house martin, swallow, pied wagtail, wren, robin, redstart, song
thrush, mistle thrush, blackbird, blackcap, garden warbler,
whitethroat, willow warbler, chiffchaff, goldcrest, great tit, coal
tit, blue tit, long-tailed tit, treecreeper, magpie, jay, jackdaw,crow,
raven, rook, chaffinch, house sparrow, linnet, and goldfinch.

The views were lovely and the good weather meant that we saw orange
tip, red admiral, and speckled wood butterflies as well.

The details for the June field trip are now on the field trips section.
