Yesterday turned out to be quite good for birds around Stobswood and Widdrington tip. There were 7 Snipe, 12 Grey partridges and an abundane of Skylark and Meadow pipit as well as a few Reed buntings. The best bird was a Long Eared Owl in the pine plantation where the old pit heap used to be. Also Buzzard and 33 Long tailed tits. Plenty of fungi and plants around here. Some good fungi along the Borough woods at Mopeth today. It was nice and sunny but cold so insects were few but a few Speckled woods, Wall and Small tortoiseshell butterflies at Stobswood.
