On a bright sunny morning, up to eight Sky Larks were active, some of them singing.  A flock of over 60 Fieldfare were feeding in fields at Pennythorn and a few Lapwings had returned to the fields near Golcar Farm.  A pair of Stonechats were feeding at the end of Birch Close Lane and a male Reed Bunting was stationed at a usual breeding spot.
