Tuesday 14 June – Marshfield Leader: Chris Perry

The walk started with Swifts and Chaffinches near the village and after crossing the main road we had several
Corn Buntings and Skylarks in the bushes and fields. Along the track were more Corn Buntings, singing and flying. A Yellowhammer was spotted in a nearby tree adding to our list. As we approached Rushmead Lane three Red Kites and three Buzzards gave good views. A few yards along the lane was a family of Whitethroat, parents busy feeding young. Another nice turn-up was a Lesser Whitethroat which called then flew across the field from a nearby bush. It was a pleasant end to a very hot walk – 22 species and 15 walkers.
