Soil Hill

Just a couple of sightings from the last few days up on Soil Hill.
Yesterday had a single RAVEN fly N mid afternoon. A pair of OYSTERCATCHER were feeding on the field at the bottom of the hill.
Today had a WILLOW WARBLER singing from first light in the small plantation at the top of the hill, just at the base of the track up to the mast. Also had a patch tick in the form of a drake TUFTED DUCK which circled the summit with a flock of Mallard. A SWALLOW was flying around the hill this pm, with another (Or the same) flying around Bradshaw Lane.
No sign of the Black Redstart today, which would have made for a nice 2 pointer for my patchwork challenge effort for the hill.

Checked the area 3 times today Daniel so it looks like it moved straight through.
