A quick visit to Walton Hill, which if you walk to the top is the highest point of the range of hills that form the Clent Hills! I confused myself there so hope that is clear. Anyway a quick check in the fields and a male Wheatear was soon spotted. Lambs were frolicking in a manure stack...looking very angelic...not!!!
Then the short drive was taken to Uffmoor Wood. Blackcap were the first birds seen a male and female, plenty more were later seen and heard around the wood! Chaffinch, L T Tit, Jay, Song Thrush, Greenfinch, Blue & Great Tit, Robin, and Great Spotted Woodpecker were also seen on the walk. Peacock butterflies were abundant in the wood. A Muntjac was spotted in the depths of the wood and a barking Roe Deer was heard in the distance, I have never heard this before, quite eerie in fact! A female Roe Deer was later seen resting amongst the Bluebells, such a pretty picture! Wildflowers were the star attraction today, the Wild Garlic is budding well and I was lucky to find a small patch in flower.
