Position static


Despite Eleanor spending plenty of time out yesterday and today, the birds remain somewhat static as you might expect for this time of the year.  There are two singing male Grasshopper Warblers at Blueberry Farm (Maidwell) currently and a pair of Barn Owls continue to use the site and nearby farmland.  Other interesting birds on this set-aside complex include several pairs of Skylark and Meadow Pipit, and the unspoilt dense hedgerows support warblers including a couple of Lesser Whitethroat territories.  In previous years a pair of Willow Tit breed here but we haven't seen them recently, a sign of the times it seems...
