A fairly chilly start to the morning. Lots of birds were seen flying in and above adjacent farmland following crop removal.
Summer Standing’s bird numbers are higher than usual following the flyover of 105 woodpigeon, from a distance I had hoped were lapwing. The highlight of the Summer Standing survey has to be four stonechat and two jay with their beautiful colouring.
