Jay House Lane

With thanks to Andy K this morning for the message about the number of gulls in the area as it turned out to be a very productive morning with around 500+ B H Gulls, c30 Common Gulls and 6 L B B Gulls though it was a struggle to find anything different with them. They were well spread out in different fields when I arrived  so had a bit of a wander round to check them out.
30 + Tree Sparrows was encouraging plus c15 House Sparrows with most of the activity around the manure pile.
Unexpected was a Lesser Whitethroat skulking around in the shrubbery and also in the pile of dead branches nearby
Also present
1 Whitethroat
3 Willow Warblers
c10 alba wagtails
c150 Swifts and 200+ Swallows SW
Also a good number of Linnet, Goldfinch and Greenfinch.
Always a chance of something special in this area
