An evening walk around the new lake at Heslington East produced a flock of 20 stunning summer plumaged Black-tailed Godwit, unfortunately they were flushed by someone walking along Low Lane and they flew south towards the LDV. A single summer plumaged Dunlin was also present on one of the flashes.
An adult Red-legged Partridge was seen with 10 chicks in tow. A pair of Grey Partridge were seen too.
Whilst driving home a strategic stop produced incredible views of Barn Owl feeding up its nest, with a pair of Tawny Owls at their nest too.
