Tuesday 16th April

A day out with the boys saw us heading for Salisbury Plain area in Wiltshire in hope of seeing Stone Curlew and we managed to see two of them , we also saw a female Hen Harrier , numerous Red-Legged Partridge around 20 Corn Bunting , a Red Kite , 3 Great Bustard ( The first time that I have seen them in this area ) , 2 male and a female Yellowhammer and 3 Brown Hare .
We then headed for Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire as a Bonaparte`s Gull and an Arctic Tern had been reported there and on the way there we saw another Red Kite from the car , at the Palace after a long walk through the grounds we got nice views of the Bonaparte`s Gull and Arctic Tern on the lake and we also saw a Great White Egret and a Common Tern and flying around the grounds were at least another 4 Red Kite , and just as we started our journey home a Muntjac Deer crossed the road in front of us ......A superb day out .
