Billinge Hill & Around

A quick jaunt up the lump produced my first Whitethroat of the year.

Other birds:
2 raven
6 swallows
Willow warbler

There were also at least 7 wheatear in the field behind the farm near to Mountains Farm

  1. Where the Wheatears anywhere near the manure pile where the yellow wagtails hang about?

  2. Hi Andrew, the wheatear were in the next field over to the west. Behind the house with all the logs piled in the garden.

    You will have noticed that the "poo pile" field is now a oil seed rape field in full flower ... not sure whether yellow wags will nest in that stuff ...
