Soil Hill to Mixenden

Soil Hill 1030 hrs. 2 Pied Wagtail ditto Reed Bunting, 3 Mistle Thrush ditto Whitethroat. Pr Grey Partridge, 2 WW.  c100 Lapwing in newly mown field adjacent N slope tree line also several corvid here. LBBG movement about 8 birds. 1 Skylark, 3 Meadow Pipit, 4 Swallow, 2 Swift.
5 Linnet which hopefully will increase by 4 as this photo shows.

Ogden Res: 4 LBBG, 2 Common & c50 BH Gull. 1 Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcap heard. 

Then around 1245 hrs the humidity and heat killed most activity and the golf course was redundant apart from moving Woodpiggies.

The track near to Mixenden produced 4 Linnet, 1 Curlew, 2 Meadow Pipit. The Res had slightly fewer Swallow and House Martin than my last visit but coughed up GSW, 2 WW, 3 Grey & 4 Pied Wagtail. A lone LBB represented the gull family.
