Brampton Valley birds


Didn't have to travel far today to come across good birds! The remains of the sunflower crop in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton attracted a Greenfinch flock numbering about sixty birds, with much smaller numbers of Goldfinch and Linnet. It was probably these that attracted a female Merlin this morning as she hunted the open expanse fields at the usual high speed Merlin pace!

Also present was the Short-eared Owl again and one of the pairs of Stonechat put in an appearance.
