Saturday 22nd March 2014

On a cold, bright, blustery morning, three male Wheatears were on the Golf Course with up to 10 Skylarks.  In the fields near Golcar Farm up to 20 pairs of Lapwing had settled on territory where two pairs of Curlews, a few Snipe, two pairs of Grey Partridge and a pair of Stock Dove were feeding. A pair of Reed Bunting also flew over.
