The Burgh

An evening walk up The Burgh in windy conditions proved unproductive for passerines, despite a small group of Willow Warber on arrival at Canada Barn. Raptors were more active with at least 2 Buzzards, and then further on at least 2 Red Kites. A single Swift went south over, which looked to have a pale face so I'm presuming it was a juvenile. Down the valley towards the dew pond a Great Spotted Woodpecker, 2 Kestrels and I think Chiffchaffs calling. More Buzzards, Red Kites and Kestrels on the way back, and a few small flocks of gamebirds being flushed and flying low over the ground to a hiding place. At Canada Barn there was a group of gamebirds that I struggled with. I initially concluded they were juvenile Red-legged Partridge, but thanks to Matt Phelps for confirming they were Grey Partridge. A Reg-legged Partridge was also around.
