In field left of car park 5 Canada Geese by large pool of water and
great views of a pair of hares. All the usual residents - Red Kites, Kestrel
and flock of mixed finches and Skylarks singing overhead. In the right-hand
old crop field 4 Red-legged Partridges and pheasants.
Highlight was a Curlew in the grass field from the second hide. It wasn't
visible for a while because of the furrows on the far side from which it
emerged (see rather distant photo's). As I reached the car park I heard
a Curlew calling and one flew in from the left. The other joined it circling
overhead and they flew down into the pool areas in front of the hides.
I decided not to go back to get better views of them because the hedges
in that area have been re-laid and do not provide any screening for approaching
watchers. I didn't want to flush them.
