Another day given over to a mixture of surveying the area local to the house for the BTO Atlas , admin. and domestic matters. I've come to a ( flippant ) conclusion there ought to be a habitat category called " unprepossessing" which doubtless would include all open sheep pasture up and down the country as it carries so little interest!!!
As a slight exception Wheatear numbers are still up, the local Raven chicks are growing apace but seeing both male and female harriers around suggests they've not yet settled down. The second lot of small Rabbits appeared from the warren developing in my garden!!! All very nice and cuddly but it's only April!!!!!
