Ogden and Soil Hill

5 Blackcap, 3 Chiffchaff, WWs, 2 Siskin, Kestrel, 3 Curlew, few Chaffinch & Goldfinch. Searched all over for Spotit Flypastyer without success.
The pr of Little Owl that frequented the W slope of Soil Hill and across the road into Ogden are no more. I found the remains of one by the roadside close to one of their favorite perching walls. Roadkill methinks.

SH had a few Linnet, 3 Whitethroat and one or two Skylark plus Meadow Pipit carrying food in their beaks.
The excavation work continues at a notable pace on the N slope bottom.
