Malvern Hills birding

I had the morning off this morning so decided to go for a quick birding session to see what had turned up overnight.  Nothing rarity wise but still a good movement of birds:

In between North Hill and Worcestershire Beacon (9.30am-1pm), 0/10 cloudcover, 16c :
3 Wren singing, 5 Skylark which were nice to hear, 40+ Meadow Pipit, 1 Jay, 2 Siskin over, small flock of Bullfinch feeding on the  rowan along with Song thrush and blackbirds, 5 Kestrel hovering just below the beacon,  1 Chaffinch flying west over, 2 Greenfinch flying west over, 2 Buzzard, 1 Pheasant, heard stonechat but couldnt locate them.  Butterfly wise just Comma and Speckled Wood still active.  On the Beacon there was a small group of flies with orange on their wings.  Bit like horse fly type things but the orange was quite striking.  Thats about it really. No sign of any Ring Ouzels or other winter thrushes yet.

Back to designing my new website which should be up and running very soon so keep checking back!!
