Aylmerton Nature Diary

A sunny Saturday afternoon

Just back from a few days away so thought I’d better get out on the ‘patch’. Nothing of particular interest up the Loke or on my return down Mill Lane. There are a few late flowers hanging on and the mixed flock of Gulls, Corvids and Wood pigeons on the stubble fields seems to keep growing. Disturbed a big dog Fox in the rough marshy pasture by the side of Scarrow Beck. A pair of Gadwall on the Lake were new – also a very white-throated female, possibly with a bit of  mixed blood? Two Snipe on the new marsh and a Bullfinch in the hedge on the way home. Lovely to be out in the late afternoon sunshine – not for much longer I suspect.

Shooting activity has increased over the past week or so – this guy was looking decidedly nervous
