Searching the Farmlands. April 2012.

After a few brief tours around local farmland I had a few images of a few species. In contrast to the Skylarks of last year, one in particular chose to pose rather than take to song flight as all the others were.

A couple of Wheatear were seen, both males, although the female seen on the first trip out had moved on.

A few Meadow pipits were busying themselves looking for insects, alongside the pairs of Chaffinch searching out seed.

A few Pied wagtails were seen alongside a couple of Yellow wagtails, but that will change soon when the Pied become more territorial and chase the Yellows off. Nice to see the Yellow Wagtails have returned to add some colour though.
