3 hours spent in the Nutwood Down & Mere End Down area from 6AM;
Female Merlin just off of Gramps Hill
30ish Corn Bunting among a flock of 90+ Corn Buntings, Yellowhammers and Linnets.
Asides from the flock; 5 singing Corn Buntings and 18 Singing Yellowhammers.
2 Singing Bullfinches
Handfuls of Redwing, Fieldfare, Stock Dove, Meadow Pipit and several singing Skylark.
Corvids, Woodpigeon and Dunnock ubiquitous.
...and a very close encounter with a Badger. Distance approx. 5 feet - hard to tell which of us was more surprised!
