Another glorious sunny afternoon, so I headed out onto the mosses after work, calling in first at North Moss Lane.
A good few Swallows around the farm buildings, but a lot of farm vehicles about too - two tractors were trundling about the ploughed field at the bottom on the right, where the Whimbrel have been hanging out, so it was pretty disturbed.
That didn't stop 12 Whimbrels feeding, but they were flighty.
Also 20+ alba wagtails, including at least 4 White Wagtails, and 6 Wheatears amongst the Jackdaws.
The junction of the Cheshire Lines paths had four singing Willow Warblers, one singing Chiffchaff and two singing Whitethroats.
Loads of Peacock butterflies feeding on dandelion flowers by the track.
As I was leaving, the Green Woodpecker started yaffling from the wood between the bottom of North Moss Lane and Broad Lane - no chance of seeing it, but it was good to hear nonetheless.
Plex Moss had 20 Whimbrel, Greater Pecker, Red Legged Partridge, 6 Corn Buntings in a flock and at the Haskayne Cutting, three Yellowhammers and more Willow Warbler and Whitethroat.
Nice to see a Little Owl perched up nearby, occasionally launching itself off its perch after prey.
I watched the dumpy little critter for half an hour or so, before heading for home.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
