An early morning visit, arriving at 0515. Nice to here the bird song but little change in species since previous visits. A pair of Mistle Thrushes were around the church and a Sparrowhawk flew overhead. The bushes within the quarry held Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Blackcap and Whitethroat. A Cuckoo called and flew over the distant farmland while a noisy Jay seemed to take exception to my presence - can't blame it really!. New bird in was a solitary Wheatear on the quarry rocks. A Muntjac strolling down the hill was also nice to see.
