Wednesday 1st July, and I started the month with another visit after work to Martin Down, this time I went to the car park of the A354. The first thing I notice as I started my walk was the amount of butterflies, I soon had my target birdCORN BUNTING, with a few around. Also saw Woodpigeon, Skylark, Blackbird, Chiffchaff, Magpie, Carrion crow, Linnet & Yellowhammer.
As I was on holiday on Friday 11th July I started the day with the dogs on Yateley common, I had good views ofDARTFORD WARBLER a couple of males perched in the open singing. Later I returned for an evening on the common and this time I had good views of NIGHTJAR, as they flew around calling and others churring close by. Also noted from both visits, Black-headed gull, Woodpigeon, Green woodpecker, Great spotted woodpecker, Swallow, Wren, Robin, Stonechat, Blackbird, Song thrush, Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Coal tit, Magpie, Carrion crow, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch & Linnet.
