Singing larks

A lunch time stroll along the cycle path to Doddington, today, produced a few species of interest. Two Skylarks were briefly in full song.  A Peregrine was hunting Wood pigeons on neighbouring fields. Two Meadow pipits fed in a small wetland at the side of the path.  Small flocks of Pink-footed geese were commuting between tasty fields.  The largest accumulation of birds were about 500 in a grass pasture just down from the village.

Hawthorn was coming into leaf next to the path!  Obviously continental plants.  Older, more established plants are still in tight bud.
