The Peewits arrived in 2010 - first one pair and later on they were joined by a second pair. Then they disappeared during the winter - perhaps they headed west to the Somerset Levels and joined a winter flock. But now they are back! We have had a lot of rain this month and the Big Field is wet and puddly. A lot of bugs may be washed to the surface and the worms easier to pick up. We love their song and acrobatic manoeuvres as they duck and dive and roll across the Field. Lets hope they stay for this breeding season too.
It was a bright day with white clouds billowing across the sky and the Buzzards were flying high on the thermals. Their nest in the top of the Ash tree is clearly visible still and they are adding sticks to it before reoccupation! You can't see it at all when the leaves are back. Gordon
