Dale airfield

Plenty of pipits and skylarks on the runways, with dozen or so Reedbuntings among them to keep me on my toes. The western section of the inner grassy triangle, traditionally favoured by Lapland buntings, is fast filling in with gorse, a bit of sympathetic management might restore what was a reliable area. A female Kestrel by the Hooksies. c300 Lapwing with 50 Golden plover flying over near Talbenny.
