Bank Holiday Bike Ride

I was working this morning but after lunch decided to get out on the motorbike. Initial thought was to go to Slimbridge where some good birds had been reported. However I decided on a route that covered some of the fine roads that Wiltshire has to offer. During my ride I saw a couple of Chinooks flying around so headed over towards Salisbury Plain to find out what they were doing. It appeared that there is an exercise on and although I couldn’t get particularly close managed to see what was going on. As always there was birding to be done on the Plain. A pair of Stonechats, Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Corn Bunting, Whitethroat and Lapwing were all noted. Also seen was female Wheatear and a Raven. Unfortunately it isn’t as easy birding from a bike as it is in a car but still worthwhile. Also seen today were the first Swifts away from the Water Park with a few over the house at lunchtime.
