Gave Haskayne Cutting a look this afternoon, but it was baking hot, the soaring temperatures warning of the imminent summer lull in bird world.
One Yellowhammer singing away by the bridge, with Whitethroat, Willow Warbler, Chaffinch chuntering away too.
Few Four Spot Chasers in the wetter areas, but otherwise it was as quiet as the rest of Plex.
It may look very green and summery, but really your best bet out here at this time of year is an evening drive in the hope of hearing a Quail in the oceans of crops.
I decided my time would be better spent drinking beer in the back garden at Dempsey Towers and looking at bees and butterflies while pretending to garden.
Good to see a Small Copper flitting about - it's been a year or two since one has come into the garden, just a shame they are such flighty weasels.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
