Guestling Wood

A large movement of Meadow Pipits and Siskins was taking place, with hundreds of birds involved in an almost continuous stream. Many of the former were dropping down into fields of recently cut rape at Church Farm and small flocks of birds were on the move everywhere one looked on the horizon.
Siskins were also feeding in willows and alders.
Few other species involved in the movement – just 1 Tree Pipit – but a flock of c100 Linnets in the rape field.
Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Hobby & Red-tailed Hawk in the area.
