Spent some time studying and counting the vast EUROPEAN GOLDEN PLOVER flock traversing the A5183. They were concentrated in the fields SE of Punch Bowl Lane at TQ 125 095 and after several concerted 'click-counts', the total number of birds peaked at 2,734 birds. Young Luke Massey obtained these atmospheric images above. This flock was in addition to 638 birds I counted at Wilstone earlier.
These same fields held 5 different Common Buzzards (all dark morph) and 2 Common Kestrels.
A single LITTLE EGRET was in the River Ver just east of the road at TQ 124 112 (Lee G R Evans)
