March 29th.

Yellowhammer (female).

Yellowhammer (male).

Yellowhammer (male).

Early start this morning 7-45 / 9-30, weather strong south west winds, clear sky and sunny. The reason for this mornings early start was to try a get some images of the Yellowhammers that were in the horse paddocks yesterday.Yellowhammers are not that common at Shustoke, just one or two records of single birds most years. I soon found 5 birds (2 males & 3 females) feeding about 30yds in but they were very nervous, and any movement made them fly into the hedgerows,as their is no entry into the paddocks it took quite some time to get a few decent record images .Also noted 3 Red-legged Partridge, 2 Redwing and 3 Buzzards displaying overhead.
