Didn't get out birding today but during my morning dog walk I had the bonus of a patch tick in the form of a Kingfisher! It was sat on a fence post next to a small field drain before flying off down the drain. That's about the 4/5th Kingfisher I've had this year - all but 1 in the York Recording Area!

A flock of c130 Lapwing flew north and the dawn (well dawn +2hr) chorus consisted of Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Robin, Wren and Skylark - the usual singing birds of the last few days with Yellowhammer starting to make noises like they are soon to start up too.
