This cold spell certainly put paid to the Skylarks and Mipits, not seen any up on the Roof since the 15th, probably all gone back to the coast if truths known!
Even the Song Thrushes have quietened down a bit! But just one still went for it with (over 10 minutes)
Wee woo, wee woo,
hoo whit, hoo whit,
chereek, chereek, chereek,
witty woo, witty whoo,
ker poo, ker poo,
Trough eh, trough eh (fast and in trill)
(Part Curlew intro call),
hooit, hooit, hooit,
kitti-zay, kitti - zay
and lots lots more, but my shorthand today was very limited and he was singing a lot faster than I could write it down, so I will get some more hopefully over the next few days.
The regular pair of Stonechats are seen on both dates in the Dalton deforested (just higher than the line of trees but below Wheatear Plain and sometimes further up near the "Gully". Three Mistle Thrush also present in this area. One Green Woodpecker flew across towards the Cuckoo tree.
