A couple of hours on the Ridgeway

A walk on the Ridgeway today in windy and unsettled conditions produced the following sightings: 2 Ring Ouzels found hiding in the trees for cover also 6+ Wheatears on the slopes, several Corn Buntings, Skylarks and Meadow pipits singing. A few small groups of Goldfinches and Linnets moving from tree to tree with small groups of Swallows flying fast just above the ground. On the way back a single Fieldfare and Yellowhammer with a couple of Buzzard and a Kestrel soaring on the wind and the star bird a fantastic Peregrine Falcon drifted overhead giving superb views. DT
