CURLEW over Southill

Just got back from my usual bird walk around the village. Highlight was a single very vocal EURASIAN CURLEW, coming from the direction of Broom and looked to be coming down towards Southill Lake.

Three Red Kites together over Southill Park (one of them missing a lot of primaries on the right wing) was a great sight. Also around 600 Golden Plovers in fields north of the village. Still lots of Meadow Pipits in the winter rape fields around here and quite a few Skylarks. At least 6 Bullfinches in Southill Millennium Woods (Paul Donald)
