Streatleybury and Pegsdon Hills today

There were still at least 2 male Northern Wheatear on the top sheep field at Streatleybury. Mistle Thrush was also present with 3 Buzzard together on the wing. Corn Buntings were singing on the wires from nearby Bartonhill Road.

On Pegsdon Hills, 6 Ring Ouzel were showing well at lunchtime between the Deacon Hill terrace (south west end) and the Great Coombe (Chack Valley). Meadow Pipits were conspicuous with a couple of Red Kite quartering languidly in the area (Darren Thomas)
