A Nice Walk From Home

This afternoon I had a walk along the railway path to Chiseldon Firs, then through Lower Upham to the Ridgeway, along to Liddington Castle and home. Overall it was pretty poor for birds with many parts of the route almost birdless apart from overflying pigeons and corvids. Highlight along the Railway Path was a group of four Bullfinches and on the higher ground a couple of Stonechats were the best. A couple of flocks of winter thrushes bumped up the quantity a bit as did fourteen Meadow Pipits on the ridge near to the Castle. Two Buzzards and a Kestrel were the only Raptors noted and no Owls were flying about. In five miles of walking over two hours of walking the species total was a paltry twenty-six.
