Had a wander up to Taylor Lane to see if the Cuckoo's
were still there and was quite a fruitful day, two other birders
were there when I arrived, Denise was one of them and
she was very clued up on birds and had eyes like a hawk,she'd just
seen 3 Whinchat up Old Guy Road but all I'd seen were Starlings and
she got to see Siskins in a flock of Gold and Greenfinch while I was
further up the road looking for Cuckoo's and I'm sure there were two
of them and I also seen a flock of Linnets flying from wall to wall and
a group of Goldie's on the thistles, 3 Kestrel were seen while driving along
Roper lane and about 10 Common Gull and plenty of Swallows.
Garden had Gold and Greenfinch, Great & BlueTits and a first for me in the
garden were 2 Coal Tits, also 1Wren, 1 Dunnock, 3 Collared Doves, 2 Wood
Pigeons, 5 Starlings and a Raven flew overhead high up, 1 Swift in back field.
