The Downs

I managed a good long walk around the downs between Titch Hill and No-Man's-Land before the drizzle set in. An adult Peregrine was sitting on a stone in a bare field, while three Ravens flew over and two young Red Kites were on patrol. Three Kestrels included a showy adult male. Two Buzzards and two Sparrowhawks were also seen. Passerines included three Chiffchaffs, 40 Skylarks, a Redwing, two Fieldfares, four Stonechats, 50 Meadow Pipits, 30 Pied Wagtails, three redpolls, seven Reed Buntings, 11 Yellowhammers, two Siskins, 50 Linnets and two Bullfinches.
