Whetstone Gate - 3 Wheatear, Raven, flock of 20 Linnet, Kestrel.
Shaun Radcliffe

Three Wheatears and two Whinchats were at the end of Birch Close Lane.  Four Red Grouse and two families of Reed Buntings were on the fringes of the Golf Course.  A falcon, believed to be a Hobby came over from the west and disturbed many passerines as it circled and returned at great speed from the direction it had come from.
