NORTHERN WHEATEAR at Woodside Farm, Caddington

This morning at 07:00, Woodside Farm nr Caddington held a female Northern Wheatear, 5 Meadow Pipits and several Blackcap & Chiffchaff territories. The Wheatear was spotted flying into a young rape crop, where it promptly disappeared and would be impossible to find unless it flew again.

One the way to Harpenden, a single Swallow was over Gibraltar Farm (Pepsal End).
