Just a Little Birding

With lots to do at home today I missed out a bit on birding on such a nice day. Two quick look-ins at the Chiseldon Floodwater got me four Mallard and the Ruddy Shelduck. I went out to Eysey but only stayed for twenty minutes or so. Three Green Sandpipers and a few Sand Martins were the first birds seen. Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs were singing, a Grey Wagtail flew over and Sparrowhawk and Buzzard were both seen soaring overhead. Finally I managed a half hour on Liddington Hill where it was very quiet. Other than the usual corvids, gulls and pigeons just four species seen. Yellowhammer, Linnet, Chaffinch and Blackbird. Dissapointing considering the amount of Wheatear and Ouzels seen elsewhere today.
