It was very wet underfoot, with all the fields ankle deep in water, nevertheless, there was a good passage of birds this morning. In the 'horse-field' on the Glen Road, a couple of Whinchats were feeding with two Wheatears and further along in the newly cut meadow a similar group but with an additional Whinchat. A Buzzard watched for voles from a fence post at Weecher and three Stock Doves fed in the open fields. Along the hedgerow, up from Glovershaw Farm, five Spotted Flycatchers, a Blackcap, three Willow Warblers and an adult Stonechat with juvenile completed a satisfactory tour.
