Battle Farm

Monday 29 November 2010

On an extremely cold and frosty morning I tackled my regular monthly survey round the fields at Battle Farm, Preston Crowmarsh.  A nice little covey of 11 Grey Partridges, 35 Fieldfare and 22 Redwing were the best of the 437 birds of 29 species noted.  I also noticed some movement of Lapwings with 5 groups totalling 114 individuals heading to the south at high altitude.  I probably missed loads as I was concentrating on trees and bushes rather than looking high up in the sky.
