East Guldeford Levels

A lovely bright morning, not as bitterly cold  as yesterday-though 5 layers of thermal clothing helps !

A good selection today, and very good numbers too-around 1500 each of Golden Plover and Lapwing were record counts for me this winter, at least 300 Starlings too. The stubbles yielded at least 2 calling Lapland Buntings-the fifth consecutive visit I've recorded these. As usual they sped off and I didn't see or hear them again. Other farmland birds were c40 Skylarks, a lone singing Corn Bunting, 6 Tree Sparrows and 60 Stock Doves. A single Med. Gull was with the Commons, 3 Buzzards were predictable, less so was this fine pair of Little Owls sunning themselves at Moneypenny-I've only seen one there before, a few times.
