Eyes to the skies.

The swift numbers have continued to build,especially over the works area.The sky was full of birds,with three hundred plus pushed down by heavy cloud.Total swift and hirundine count must have been over four figures.Quite a sight.

Three yellow wags,four mistle thrushes including a newly fledged individual and a song thrush were in the horse paddock.

The now reliable cuckoos (two) and cetti’s warbler made themselves known.

A single curlew was the only wader seen.

On the far side of the car park field a couple of grey partridges were the first I’ve seen here for a few months.

Chris Evans flies over.

The Lancaster bomber flew over Marston this morning on it’s way to Biggin Hill as part of the Dambusters commemoration.Chris was on board for a radio 2 broadcast.
