Dairy Farm Road to Old Coach Road

I did a lap of the Rainford Mosslands again this afternoon starting at Dairy Farm Road to the Old Coach Road, and then back past Clare's Moss Plantation and Inglenook Farm.
Four of the five yellow wagtail were in the same potato field as when I went two weeks ago, the other one was in the field with the cows between Inglenook Farm and Dairy Farm Road. There were a few yellow wagtails flying over the potato field as well but I'm not sure if they were the same birds.
Four of the five kestrel were all together over Clare's Wood, all chasing each other. And the five oystercatcher were flying together making lots of noise from the direction of Bunker Hill. I must have missed a whitethroat somewhere - only four of them!
