Before the Moon......
Sheep and Foxes ! Best, this nice Fieldfare, our first of the winter.
Goldies in with the sheep, a small group of Skylark in the stubble too.. A couple of Woodcock seen and this young one caught.
Woodcock with short bills are being reported, we are still to find one.
Tonight's site is not one we visit that often, only two fields lamped (but still 3.4km) on a dry and windless night.
With squelching soil underfoot, a total of two Fieldfare and Woodcock makes for a happy start to this week of fading moon. Bring on tomorrow !!
