Kelling Heath

I wanted to discover a new site the last time I was at my parents. So I sought out Kelling Heath. It turns out that what I thought was Kelling Heath previously, was actually a mile and half away from the proper site.
It was a bright morning, not particularly warm, but there was plenty of activity on the heath.
From the car park I could hear plenty of bird song, with Skylarks, Linnets and Yellowhammer calling in the distance and my first Chiffchaff of the year.
It's a fantastic place, and I can imagine this being alive with Cuckoo calls in a few weeks time, maybe even Turtle Dove. It is supposed to be home to the Dartford Warbler and Adders, so I will be visiting again soon.

Linnets were in very good numbers on the gorse.


Great to see Yellowhammers in good numbers. One more for the year list.

  7. Those linnets are absolutely wonderful. There seems to be a hint of red on the chest, or am I imagining things? And I agree that the yellowhammer is pretty, too.

  8. I wish I could identify songs of the birds. Maybe if I gave it more attention, I could but I depend on my daughter to do that for me.
