With rain forecast for later today, I went up to Therfield Heath in the morning. A walk through Fox Covert produced a bonus in the form of a pair of Spotted Flycatchers collecting food-no breeding birds at Amwell this year.
The hillside, despite the breeze was covered in Chalkhill Blues. The plants were pretty much the same as Watlington with the addition of a dark blue campanula-I forgot to mention Harebells for yesterday.
A stop at Deadmans Hill produced a couple of Buzzards and a flock of Swallows feeding over a cut field. A few Linnets and Yellowhammers flying around but no Corn Buntings or Quail.
