Monitoring Project Sightings

Species: Birds
Location: Summer Standing and Chapel land

168 birds of 26 species

A still, overcast morning which managed to stay dry until the end of the survey. Lots of juveniles around including two young kestrels practising their flying skills and a little family of lesser whitethroat. The hay harvesting has started with roughly a third taken from the old chapel land so far.
