Above- Tree Sparrow top and bottom and Reed Bunting centre.
This weekend was the November Winter Plover Survey. I have three tetrads to cover, all in the Boulmer / Longhoughton area. On the inland one, just south of Longhoughton I had a nice flock of finches and buntings in a field left as game cover. There were 10+ Tree Sparrows, 10+Yellowhammers and 8+ Reed Buntings plus Linnets, Greenfinches and Chaffinches and a Brambling heard. Also here I flushed a Woodcock from a hedge bottom.
