As I wandered up towards Peppering Farm a covey of Grey Partridges crossed the road, paused momentarily before heading into the long grass and away. A few long distance cropped shots...
|They've seen me!|
|A quick dash...|
..into the long grass and they were gone!
Then it was up to the dew pond and down the hill where a small flock of Fieldfares were feeding on the Hawthorn
|Very skittish birds...they didn't stop long.|
Few other birds about except for a two chaffinches and this Song Thrush..
So it was onto Arundel and Swanbourne Lake to locate the reported Firecrests...but alas, not a chance!
|Apart from the usual wildfowl and these Jackdaws...zilch!|
Here's to a better trip next time!
