17-4-11, Whitemoor Haye.
Back to the local patch after a most excellent grand prix and the end of the Arsenal/Liverpool match. I walked the lanes before heading to the quarry pool. Birds noted around the fields were Swallow, Woodpigeon, Mistloe Thrush, Blackbird, Robin, Chaffinch, Skylark, Tree Sparrow, Cormorant, Carrion Crow, Lapwing, Buzzard, Reed Bunting, Corn Bunting, Meadow Pipit, Blue Tit, Yellowhammer, Common Whitethroat, 2 Grey Partridge, Dunnock, Pheasant, 92 Mute Swans, Grey Heron, Magpie, Moorhen, Kestrel and Pied Wagtail. On to the quarry pool and I added Tufted Duck, Teal, Chiffchaff, Common Tern, Wheatear, Blackcap, Black Headed Gull and Oystercatcher. Not a bad day with four year ticks.
