9-4-11, Whitemoor Haye.
A bit of a busy Saturday but I did have time to have a walk around Whitemoor Haye. A walk around the lanes got me Magpie, Blackbird, Tree Sparrow, Black-headed Gull, Carrion Crow, Skylark, Robin, Mallard, Woodpigeon, Pheasant, Stock Dove, Long-tailed Tit, Swallow, Wren, Lapwing, Corn Bunting, Reed Bunting, Canada Geese, Yellowhammer, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Grey Partridge 6, Linnet, Chiffchaff, Song Thrush, Moorhen, Blue Tit, and Buzzard. Over to the quarry pool and as they are now dumping hundreds of tons of soil along the hedgline. Dont know what thats all about but I wouldnt be suprised to see a bloody great big fence put up to block out views of the pool. In the meantime I noted Redshank, Great-crested Grebe, Tufted Duck, Willow Warbler, 56 Mute Swan, Greenfinch and Starling. Back towards the car and I added Great Tit, Lesser Black-backed Gull and Mistle Thrush. The chances of Quail turning up this year is very low as the fields have been planted with mainly potatoe along with rape. Not good.
