More local patch goodies.

Today at Marston five yellow wags (all males), were in the sheep field, together with a white wagtail and around 35 pied wags. Spadge turned up and we dug out a couple of wheatears, one in the same field with another one  on Green lane.

Also in the sheep field were linnets, goldfinches, chaffinches, meadow pipits, skylarks, two yellowhammers and and two red-legged partridges. Eight curlews flew over as did a couple of swallows.

Quite a few butterflies were out today, green-veined whites, brimstone, small torts and peacocks.

High-voltage nesting site.

These carrion crows (not ravens as I thought they might have been), have found this pylon to their liking, pretty safe but awfully exposed in bad weather.
