During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Soil Hill pm

                                           1 of 3 Whitethroat

                                       A good stronghold for Skylark



Soil Hill at 1830 hrs on a warm sticky evening with bright sunshine on a light W>3.
                                                            A busy day not getting free until late so just time for a quick search around Soil Hill. Plenty small passerine activity , the highlight being a singing Sedge Warbler which refused to come out of its Bramble patch. 3 Whitethroats were present along with the usual Skylarks with a count of 9 singing birds, some food carrying.
                                                                   A Little Grebe was on the NK pond along with 2 Moorhen whilst a decent Linnet flock is building down at the bottom of the tree line.

1 Willow Warbler
11 Linnet
9 Skylark

sev Mipits
