Back on the Hill

After a day decorating I managed an hour or so around Liddington Hill. On the drive over a small group of Fieldfare were seen. As I got out of the car I could hear a Corn Bunting singing. I soon found it atop a small tree. A nearby tree held a flock of around sixty more. Also with them were a few Yellowhammers. Heading off along the track I could see a few gulls and corvids in a newly worked field. A Sparrowhawk was spiralling upwards in a thermal, a Buzzard was soaring on the ridge and a Kestrel hovering along the hedgerow. Blue Tit, Great Tit and Chaffinch were along the track and another flock of Corn Buntings passed over. Up towards the Ridgeway a single Wheatear was on the grassy slope amongst the sheep. A Red Kite drifted into view and the Kestrel was seen again.
