Pepper Hill

 An hour or so on the top above Claremount and Boothtown late morning produced, for me anyway, the first Skylarks of the year. Three of them in the sheltered fields facing east. No song heard here as yet though they do sing early in the year. I got their call several times, it reminds me of.... 'cheerup' .....'cheerup' !!

The Skylarks were with c60 Redwings, 4 Mistle Thrush and a single Song Thrush with 10+ Meadow Pipits in an adjacent field. There could have been more though they were possibly hidden in the longer grass keeping low down in the blustery wind.

Skylark - a nice sign of spring.
Weather to match as well after today (Thursday) Dave.
