But todays walk as usual started out through Bath Mill, normal stuff with the first Chiffchaff on start of dog track, notice stunning blue sky !

Up over onto Seven Acre Goldcrest, Buzzards also Yellowhammer numbers still good here with at least 5/6 in hedgerows also Skylarks up !

No Swallows yet but keeping eyes peeled! 
Grey Heron flypast in village bit weird, Grey Wagtails on waterfall briefly, 5 Mute Swans
not much on lakes so here a Coot.

Out through college grounds flyover 8 Fieldfare, 2 more Chiffchaff and Stock Doves still about.
Walked on towards Stanton Prior today but extra was only 2 Jays and final Chiffchaff, some good views over Stanton Prior though.

Up towards Park Farm and a Male Bullfinch normal Yellowhammers then it rained and some thunder so I quicken my step to walk the remaining 2 miles back with not much else.
