Woodbury Common

A good few birds on a family dog walk this morning. Notably a single lapland bunting with a mobile skylark flock near the grenade range and 16+ reed bunting . A great grey shrike in the expansive boggy area beneath Woodbury Castle, visible from several points on the footpaths that border the boggy area. No sign of any dartfords on the hour long walk.
A quick return visit late pm produced c30+ reed buntings, great grey shrike approx 800 yds east of the Warren carpark, 1/2 redpoll sp, ringtail hen harrier and 2 raven.
