Croston Finney 1.10.11

Post by Neil Southworth » Sat Oct 01, 2011 3:40 pm

Paid a visit to Croston Finney this morning but didn't really get past the first field. It was being ploughed by the farmer and this was attracting large numbers of larks, pipits, wagtails, starlings and finches, although the highlight was a single Wheatear, possibly a Greenland bird. Sightings:-
Cormorant, Kestrel, Lapwing 8, Herring Gull 3, Skylark 50+, Meadow Pipit 50+, Pied Wagtail 20, Wheatear, Starling 300+, Crow 4, Linnet 100+, Goldfinch 4, Chaffinch 2, Reed Bunting
Insects:- Red Admiral 20, Small Tortoiseshell 4

Did you check the electric pylon for the peregrine Neil?

Yes, but the pylons were entirely occupied by Starlings. Couldn't see any sign of a raptor on any of the ones in range, Gary.

Hi Gary, did you have a look on the floor of the pylon for any prey.

Rich.
