Reed Buntings - Puncheston Common

Puncheston Common after the rain and 2 weeks after a major fire.
Wet Buzzard and Kestrel on posts.  Approximately 30 Reed Buntings.  Small numbers usually breed on the Common but an influx this evening.  Two Curlew headed in Newport direction. 6 - 8 Snipe.  Hundreds of Starling around the farms later heading for Plumstone.
