Walked from Back lane Ogden to Mixi res this morning. There was a Cuckoo calling at Ogden when I was walking on back lane, 1 calling from the Golf course and one in Mixi res plantation, Either it was following me around or there were 3 different birds.?? One juv little Owl , Oystercatcher , Lapwing ,Curlew and Snipe on the Golf course. Loads of Linnets and Reed Bunts and a couple of pairs of Lapwing with 1 flying juv (just) and a couple of young grey Wags at Mixi res. Lots of House Martins , Swifts and Swallows . Two Great crested Grebes flying over the golf Course towards Ogden were superb in the sunlight.
Had 2 adults + 2 Juv Wheatear and another agitated male Wheatear (different site) from an upland site on Monday.
