Not much time for Birding today but got an hour's 'vis migging' in at Grendon Common. Brilliant work by Keith Warmington and his team in clearing Silver Birch saplings in an attempt to restore original heathland. Certainly improved the vis. but will undoubtedly improve the habitat for Butterflies and reptiles.
Anyway, waited nearly half an hour before the first group of Redwing flew over, about 30. It was shortly afterwards though that the star bird, a single Woodlark flew over, calling continuously. 5 Skylarks also flew over later to give a good chance to compare the two species.
Other birds of interest; Raven, Gt spotted Woodpecker (2), Common Buzzard (2).
