Over the past couple of years we've had the impression that Yellowhammers have been in significant decline on our home patch at Titlington Mount, both as wintering flocks and as calling, breeding birds.

It was therefore great this morning to see a flock of around 50 birds in a hawthorn hedge below our farm road.  There were one or two Chaffinches with them but the vast majority were Yellowhammers.  No camera with us I'm afraid and anyway it would have been hard to get any useful images as they flitted about in the hedge.
