Woodoaks Farm

A late morning visit in glorious sunshine and a light breeze provided the following species of note:-
Hobby (1 over old orchard briefly before hawking insects above ladywalk wood), Red Kite (1), Little Owl (pair with 2 fledged young in old orchard), Ring-necked Parakeet (1 over), Green Woodpecker (adult with 2 juvs in old orchard), Chiffchaff (2), Goldfinch (7), Yellowhammer (female).
Speaking to Chris the farm hand he informed me that a Wheatear had been present along the footpath passing the manure pile since last Wednesday, alas it did not show for me today.
