Southfields Farm, Coleshill.
I wasn't supposed to be visiting the farm this morning, it was a last minute decision but when the birding and wildlife is a good as it always is here then I can't go wrong.
Highlights were were seeing the usual high number of House Sparrow, the relatively high number of Yellowhammer with approximately twenty seen in the same area, observing the wonderful flight of the Skylark, the return of Swallows this year, hearing many Chiffchaff and seeing plenty of Tits and Finches. There is also evidence that the wildflower meadow is ready to burst into life, going on last years experience it should be an amazing spectacle.
Birds seen today were, Buzzard, Yellowhammer, Skylark, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Chiffchaff, House Sparrow, Dunnock, Wren, Robin, Swallow, Blackbird, Collared Dove, Woodpigeon, Jackdaw, Carrion Crow, Magpie, Moorhen, Mallard and Grey Heron and Cormorant flying overhead.
