Good Time on the Plain

A few hours on Salisbury Plain this afternoon were extremely productive with thirty-three species noted. Highlights included a dozen Red kites and Buzzards circling in a thermal, a female Peregrine seen catching a Stock Dove which with help from a male was plucked and eaten, a pair of Stone Curlew with one young, four Quail heard and a Curlew. Also noted were three Whinchat, a Stonechat and a heard only Cuckoo. As usual there were many Skylark s singing and also plenty of Whitethroats and Corn Buntings.
