Woodoaks Farm

I conducted a mid afternoon circuit of the farm following the track past the cow sheds and up along the Old Orchard before passing through Ladywalk Wood. At the orchard 22 Goldfinch fed hungrily on thistle heads while overhead several Swallow passed by. At the wood 2 Chiffchaff were heard while in the undergrowth a Field Vole was observed briefly. Returning back to the farm passing the manure pile I noted c100 Woodpigeon and 6 Stock Dove feeding among the stubble while 3 Ring-necked Parakeet passed overhead on their way to the wood.
A full list of species observed as follows:-
Red Kite (1), Feral Rock Dove (6), Stock Dove (6), Woodpigeon (c100), Collared Dove (21), Green Woodpecker (1), Ring-necked Parakeet (3), Barn Swallow (11), Wren (2), Chiffchaff (2), Goldcrest (2), Great Tit (1), Eurasian Jay (1), Common Magpie (2), Carrion Crow (3), Common Starling (1), House Sparrow (5), Common Chaffinch (1), European Goldfinch (22).
