Swales Moor and Cold Edge

Swales Moor - Ringby Lane. It was difficult to find anything moving at all first thing - other than  a few birds >W = 1 Skylark, 18 Chaffinch (in ones and two's), 2 Starlings, 2 Woodpigeons and 3 Meadow Pipits.

Not  a lot else at all, usual lots of corvids and a large group of B H Gulls with  few Common Gulls in the fields at Ploughcroft.

Cold Edge this afternoon - pretty quiet too but 12 Wigeon on the lower dam was nice to see (for the year)!
11 Moorhens included 7 half grown juveniles
2 Kestrels (one with a vole)
2 Stonechat - with 3 more at The Withens and another 2 at Moorlands Farm.

Nice one with 12 Wigeon Dave.
(Great weather in Russia is kiboshing your morning birds Dave)!!
Great Stonechat numbers this year as well.
DJB sends his regards to all, from Brazil.
