After the recent dull, dark and wet weather, it was a real pleasure to have a glorious sunny, blue sky day, and what a better way to enjoy it, than in the company of farmland birds? I had four birds that I wanted to touch base (year ticks) with today, Corn Bunting, Yellowhammer, Skylark and Little Owl. All except the Little Owl were achieved. Full list at end of post.
