A short wander around the west end of Weetslade started with a Sparrowhawk gliding in circles then suddenly downward like a rocket and out of sight. A Grey Heron stood to attention in the corn field. Barn Swallow numbers are building.

and a few Small Tortoiseshell butterfly flew in the field margins.
A buzzard flew over and came to rest on top of nearby tree. Mute Swan and Canada Goose were seen as well as a pair of Little Grebe. 

Water levels in this whole area are well up on normal.
Three Lapwing were present near one of the man made ponds.

Pipits and Skylark were in abundance around the hill slopes

and a Mistle Thrush stood high and handsome
