Winter Srikes Again

Was up Soil Hell at 1030 hrs and at one stage I thought the heavy jacket would have to succumb to the Suns rays and come off. 2 minutes later I was retreating from a hailstorm and had to get off the top rather smartish.
Nothing down the N slope bottom other than a pr Blackbird in  the bushes. We can write Sedge & Grasshopper Warblers off I believe as the Improvement work has buried the small pond and virtually destroyed the sedges.
5 Lapwing, pr Kestrel, 2 Mallard, Meadow Pipits, Skylarks, 1 Linnet.
Ogden incl Giants Tooth also poor. 1 each Curlew, Red Grouse, Meadow Pipit. 2 Chiffchaff, 5 WW, Green Woodpecker yaffling.
