Bird watching Northcurch Common – 17th June


Despite being a misty and somewhat drizzly morning on Northchurch Common it was still well worth getting up early for. I was delighted to see that Meadow Pipits were particularly plentiful, singing mainly on the wing or from perches. In my opinion, far more than usual of this species were seen on the ground upon the pathways and they allowed us to get much closer to them before flying off.

In contrast, I believe that Skylark numbers were down, with significantly fewer singing in flight. However, several older juveniles were seen, singly or in twos. With or without a parent present. Yellow Hammers were also heard again.
