Thursday 10th July

Lots of Whitethroat this season and should be even more next, found this one feeding it’s second brood.

Not as many Linnets this year but managed to capture a pair at the entrance to the old tip.

Ben sniffed out a dead badger, only hours old, found lying under a Willow tree, no obvious signs of damage, only small maybe this seasons and could be due to this very dry spell lasting so long.

Found a Wheatear on path near fishing pond, could be travelling south or possibly disturbed by the hay making on the airfield.

In the afternoon at the same place came across a field vole feeding in the centre of the path, oblivious to both me and the two dogs.
