A bit late in posting, sorry, but Friday's walk wasn't the longest or most earth shattering and I needed some rest before my night shifts so just didn't find the time. Friday after dropping the little lady at school the sun was out and giving a stunning golden light still, so I headed out to the patch for what turned out to only be a short walk in the sun.
The first thing I noticed on my walk was the amount of Skylarks passing over I got well into double figures (putting the number around 20 in around an hours walk, but may well have been more) they seemed to be in a constant stream, but they were inter mixed with a few finches as well, I counted a few Chaffinches and a couple of Linnets before getting yet another new bird in the form of a Lesser Redpoll (I think Lesser, but I get a little confused with the names these days, the one we used to just call Redpoll!).

Unfortunately apart form a couple of Chiffchaff and the odd Goldcrest there wasn't much else of note hanging around the locks, so I headed up river (towards Stony Stratford), and then home, a rather short walk if I'm honest, but I'll get back on track next week.
