Had a message from Libby Morris on the sightings email address to say that she and Graham Lyons had been searching for invertebrates on the Common and had put up nine Snipe from the reedbed, plus had a yellowhammer fly over and a Skylark singing.

And at the SDOS meeting on Thursday Sally H told me there had been lots of finches (including Yellowhammers) on the eastern of John White’s level fields at the Lydds,  where the ground hadn’t been tilled.
