My companions enjoy a good walk in the countryside and although keen to see and hear any birds available, were just as happy looking at bluebells and hares, which was just as well.

The other ornithological highlight was spotting a Lapwing chick in the flash field. Also present was a Green Sandpiper, and four Teal. These will no doubt have left by next Saturday, when a bird count competition is planned involving this patch and others in the Midlands.
