Reed Bunts

After watching Liverpool dump a 2nd Manchester club out of a cup this week we took a walk in the  late afternoon sunshine along the cycle route adjacent to some local stubble fields. Good numbers of finches feeding included a single Brambling. Buntings were represented by a single Yellowhammer but at least 20 Reed Buntings - a good size flock for this area.
A few Fieldfares & Redwings were also knocking around and the flock of 30 -40 Jackdaws were also present but very wary.
