Had to visit Baldock this morning, so took the chance to check out Deadmans Hill and Ashwell.

Deadmans Hill provided views of 4 Marsh Harrier, and 2 Red Kite flew low over the road. Corn Bunting families were very obvious feeding in the cereal fields, with at least 15 birds visible from the bottom of the hill. Highlight however was a superb Whinchat which joined the Corn Bunting briefly at 13.00, perching on top of the wheat before flying off.

A quick tour around Ashwell revealed 11 Yellow Wagtails including several juveniles, presumably on the same dung heap previously mentioned by Lee a couple of days ago.
