Agden again…

This morning I had a walk taking in High Bradfield, Agden Res, Agden Side, a quick detour to Cowell Flat, and then down Agden Rocher and down to Low Bradfield. I’m glad I did as I picked up three yearticks along the way, the first being four common sandpipers on Agden Res, and the others being a displaying tree pipit and a singing whitethroat, both at Agden Side.

Elsewhere the best of the rest were 5 golden plover over Cowell Flat; 4 x lapwing, also at Cowell Flat; a pair of great spotted woodpeckers, a bullfinch  and 4 x greylag geese at Agden Res; at least 5 linnets at Agden Side and another two at Cowell Flat; a displaying skylark seen high overRocher Cliffs; at least 3 (sadly heard only) redstarts at Agden Rocher, and a yaffling green woodpecker.

Plus, of course, there were lots of the usual along the route, including too many willow warblers to count, several curlews and blackcaps, a few swallows at Low Bradfield, and a few broods of mallard ducklings at Agden Res and Low Bradfield.

The walk finished nicely with great views of a sparrowhawk flapping and gliding straight above me as I walked from the bus stop back to the house.

Finally, here’s a few pics of the absurdly tame robin at Agden Res…
