Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

2 wheatears (both female), 2 whitethroat (seemingly on territory), 10+ skylark and 4-5 pairs of linnet. A showy and very vocal green woodpecker was my first on the very top of the Blackdowns since the winter of 2010 and certainly the first at the site for at least 18 months. The resident stock doves and ravens also present.
