A similar picture to yesterday with birds moving through the area.  In the 'horse-field' by Glovershaw Farm, there were five Wheatears and a couple of Spotted Flycatchers amongst a flock of finches feeding from the long hedgerow.  On the the other side of Glovershaw Lane, in the fields by Golcar Farm, another Wheatear was with a Whinchat.
