01/01/2015 Marshfield

Date: 01/01/2015 (Happy New Year!)
Location: Marshfield 

Observation: Thought I'd have a look at Marshfield as so many birds are seen on Marshfield Birds Website, so new year, new day, with grey skies and almost dark not good for photography but stacks of birds! Crossed the A420 With a Kestrel hunting, Linnet, Golden Plover and Lapwings all in the air at least 200 Plovers up for 20 mins to right of Northfield Lane.




Skylark, Corn Bunting and Yellowhammers in good numbers in trees along very muddy track.



Carried on to road and turned right on to Rushmead Lane, A Reed Bunting drinking from puddle was closest bird of the day, with a Pied wagtail for company.




On along lane 2 more Kestrels and a Stonechat but wind getting up and a bit of rain great! Turned left along Tormarton Road mainly Pheasant in roadside hedges but lots of Corvids in skies above 2 Raven amongst them. Stopped for a cuppa soup on start of Shirehill Lane with a Goldcrest in trees.



Carried on towards down road and the feeding station Chaffinch, Fieldfare and more Yellowhammer best here .


Crossed fields towards A420 and Buzzard was last bird of walk.
