Soar and Plymouth
An enjoyable wander in largely fine, calm conditions with Steve Cox & Jake Aley. Only vis mig today was c500 Wood Pigeons. But just after first light we found 2 Hen Harriers sitting in the big field just west of Middle Soar house - an adult female and a juv. Four Snow Buntings flew over East Soar calling and a Dartford Warbler showed at the top of Stare Hole. Otherwise - 5 Goldcrests, 6 Redwings, 8+ Cirl Buntings, 15+ Song Thrushes, 3 Siskins, 3 Blackcaps, 2 Mistle Thrushes, 2 Bullfinches, 10 Lapwings and 3 Chiffchaffs.
