Four Wheatears (2males and 2 females) in the usual area at the bottom of Birch Close Lane.  They seem to like the newly dug ditch and the old wall.  There was a flock of 11 Sky Lark feeding on a fairway and two more singing nearby.  Six Golden Plovers tried to land amongst the Lapwings but they were moved on.
