WOODLARK population stumbled upon
Unbeknown to me, up to 4 singing male WOODLARKS have been present at a site in the south of the county for the past four years. I visited this morning and was delighted to see two singing males, one of which performed by sitting on telegraph wires for 45 minutes solid. The habitat is superb and it is hoped the population will bolster in numbers.
The area was saturated in RED KITES - I counted at least 45 birds, with 25 in or around Stokenchurch. The site also held an impressive number of breeding YELLOWHAMMERS, as well Barn Swallow and House Martin.
