Got onto Plex Moss after a late shift on the coast this evening - the sun was still shining, and the crops were high.
All very pleasant, but nigh impossible to see the Quail that's calling away out there at the moment (thanks for the tip off Jim and Baz).
This evening the bird was doing the biz in crops on the southern side of Plex, throwing its voice as only Quail can do, and not even shutting up when a nice male Marsh Harrier sailed by.
In the calm of evening the combination of Quail, Skylark and Corn Bunting made for a pretty nifty choir.
Hares skittering about and the usual Lapwing, Whitethroat, Pheasant and Red Legs.
Meanwhile a male Ruddy Duck has joined the female on a certain lake on the coast, and was displaying like crazy this afternoon.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
