Return to West Hyde

A return visit to the arable fields west of West Hyde Village provided the following species of note:-
Eurasian Hobby (1), Red Kite (1), Common Swift (2), Common Skylark (6), Corn Bunting (2), Common Whitethroat (1). I then visited Troy Mill Gravel Pit where a pair of Common Goldeneye remain while overhead c30 Swift busily fed on the wing. A Common Kingfisher put in the briefest of appearances while from the Crack Willows 2 Garden Warbler and a Chiffchaff sang. On leaving a singing male Grey Wagtail was noted on wires above the weir near the marble and granite centre and may well have a nest nearby.
