A fairly standard return to the patch, highlighted by a lack of birds. Its so nice to be back booting around Soil Hill, though the breeze meant I did not stay up there long, and I don't think I would have missed much birdwise, the highlight being a Curlew in one of the fields next to the track.
I did however see my first frogspawn of the year. I have not seen any in Sheffield though clearly they have been busy here for some time as there was tonnes of the stuff in all the pools. Now we just have to hope that the pools don't dry out like they have done in the past.
Soil Hill: Starling, Curlew, Mallard, Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Lapwing, Carrion Crow, Jackdaw, Woodpigeon, Feral Pigeon
