Plenty of these about still, Meadow Pipit
Later on i was back down there again, this time by bike giving the hound a run around. Something pale flicked a bit distantly in the pony field and I was quickly on it, (Expletives!!!) Pied Fly #patchgold. It flicked off into a willow in the Howaback garden, no problem I thought... and never saw it again.
During the day I was watching Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and plenty of thrushes in the garden, very nice.
