BARTON HILLS this morning

Walk round Barton Hills this morning produced numerous Chiffchaffs singing, also a few Willow Warbler and Blackcap. Highlight was hearing a very distant Cuckoo call twice, but could not locate it. No sign of either Ring Ouzel or Wheatear. Near springs watched a Chiffchaff collecting nesting material and near cemetery saw a pair of Treecreepers. Much activity by Yellowhammers and Linnets on top of hill and numerous pairs of Skylark in fields to East. In chalk pit pair of Grey Partridge (Ian Kelly)
