Treskilling Downs

Managed to get out on to the Baywatch sites after a couple of evening *Owling* which unfortunately was not productive bird wise but was an enjoyable experience.

Penrice yielded the usual assortment i.e: Jay, G.S Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Pheasants, Squirrel and the usual woodland small birds.

An evening visit to Treskilling Downs was very rewarding....we spotted.
Cx 3 Yellowhammers.
Cx 20 Linnets
Cx 2 Jays
Cx 6 Song Thrushes.
2 x Greenfinches
3 x Willow Warblers
2 x Buzzard
2 x Bullfinches (M & F)
Meadow Pipit
Wood Pigeons
Corvids and Herring Gulls.

The Downs were alive with the young birds learning their flying technique. Yellow hammers were easily seen perching on the Gorse Bushes. Song Thrushes seemed to be everywhere along with the Jays and it proved to be a lovely way to spend a sunny summer evening
