Venus Pool - Corn Buntings!

The crop in the top field at Venus Pool has now been cut back to stubble and injected a new lease of life in the activity there. A huge Finch flock is in and out feeding on the ground and best viewed from near the large Oak tree. With birds into the 100's - primarily Reed Buntings and Yellowhammer with good numbers of Brambling, Chaffinch etc, it's a sight worth seeing!

The birds are quite flighty but here are male and female Yellowhammer.....








Male Reed Buntings....








All leading up to the birds I was really after - initially located on call.....






At least five Corn Buntings present today - bird and image of the day!! ......






I'm off to the North East tomorrow until Wednesday and hope to get some birding in.....
