The barns are used for drying grain and this attracts Corn Bunting, Yellowhammer and the odd Tree Sparrow. I have yet to see Corn Bunting here, but was fortunate to see a dozen or so Yellowhammer feeding very close by.
Red-legged Partridge and Grey Partridge were seen in the fields too on what was a really rather nice warm Spring day.
The barns at Choseley. The coastal path follows the hedge line on the left hand side.
Grey Partridge. Good numbers were seen around the hedge-lined fields.
Yellowhammer in front of the barns.
Nice little yellow bird. very beautiful and cute.ReplyDelete
What an interesting place - if it attracts birds, I'm in! I love the grey partridge. I wondered what a Yellowhammer looked like: reminds me a little of our weavers. But much more marked and brighter yellow. Thanks for sharing. JoReplyDelete
Hello, looks like a great place to spot the birds. The Yellowhammer is a lovely color. Great shots. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!ReplyDelete
The yellowhammer looks wonderful especially in that light.ReplyDelete
I'm always fascinated to see your photos. One, because they're always good, and two, because you have birds there which don't exist here in the States.ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/04/this-is-what-hope-looks-like.html
Beautiful birds at the barns.ReplyDelete
I like that little yellow guy.ReplyDelete
Nice birdshots. The yellowhammer is cute.ReplyDelete
Haven't seen a Yellowhammer before Adam. Love the markings.ReplyDelete
Wow Adam - Grey Partridge, and real ones at that. Good to see those farmland birds, especially the Yellowhammers.ReplyDelete
That 4th picture is funny: that bird can't make up his mind whether to go into the shade or stay in the sunshine.ReplyDelete
Lovely shots - I like the look of the Yellowhammer. I don't think I've seen one before.ReplyDelete
Oh be still my heart. If these birds are anything like what you'd see in and around the drying barns, I'd be sure to make stops there VERY frequently. Such beautiful sightings. and GREAT images Adam.ReplyDelete
Not seen a Yellowhammer yet this year. But I am waiting outside at my Grandma's as she saw one all last week, so I'm waiting for it to revisit.ReplyDelete
Several yellowhammers have recently moved into our back hedge and I can see them from the kitchen window - they are so pretty. #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
Hello - lovely photos, particularly of the yellowhammer. I used to hear them frequently in the fields behind me but now I only hear them occasionally. I do love to see them.ReplyDelete
The yellowhamamers are wonderful; like a spot of sunshine.; nice to have such a great birding place colse enough to visit often. I should probably know what a drying barn is for but I don't. I guess I'll visit Mr Google.ReplyDelete
Always a pleasure to stop and admire the gorgeous little birds!ReplyDelete
Ooh, that yellowhammer looks pretty cute. Nice pics Adam.ReplyDelete
the yellow hammer is a striking bird, really stands out from the crowdReplyDelete
Nice shots ,NetteReplyDelete
Nice photos. Both of these birds are common also here in Finland.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, a grain barn would be a great place to see birds! You were successful it seems!ReplyDelete
That yellow bird is a stunner! I've never seen a partridge before. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Love the yellow color..our finches are coming into their yellow breeding colors...MichelleReplyDelete
