Morning Walk

Just back from a walk with the dog from home up to Folly Farm and back. A lovely morning, surprisingly warm. There were a few Skylarks flying over and a Corn Bunting was singing. As I walked up Folly Lane six Lapwings flew up from a recently ploughed field.  A Buzzard was on the ground looking for worms and a couple of Pied Wagtails flew in. Not much at the top, a couple of Chaffinches and some Black-headed Gulls. Heading back down the Lane there were a group of six Corn Buntings in a tree another singing further on. Just before Bush Farm there was another group of five and a Yellowhammer. Back in the village were the usual House Sparrows and Starlings.                                                                                        This afternoon work took me back down to Exmouth. I managed twenty or so minutes of birding. This time the tide was right in so there were only a few waders. Turnstone, Redshank and Sanderling were noted. Some Pintail were a nice find amongst the Brent Geese and Wigeon and seven Little Egrets were feeding along the edge of the water.
