Ps.lost the rubber eye-piece cover off my scope so retraced my steps all the way back to where I first started and on the way encountered a chap with mental issues and had a chat, made a new friend and later found my eye - piece cover " Karma ! "

A juvenile Skylark first on the Grammar School playing field then flushed from tall grass on Turn Moss when it called. I must admit it had me going for a minute, looking through the fence, as it sat squat with it's back to me.

The male Redstart has been showed well later (v. elusive earlier) 16.00 - 19.00 (at least) along the eastern hedgeline.
Head on the black throat resembles more of a bib (reminded me of Eastern Black Redstart), note the yellow gape, not a particularly striking wing panel.

Short afternoon visit:-
Swallow - 2.
Jackdaw - 6.
Carrion Crow - 4.
Starling - 36. (Quite a few carrying food.)
House Sparrow ,- 6 (one male inparticular harassing several Starlings trying to make them drop what food they'd collected).
Whitethroat and Chiffchaff heard as I left.
Cormorant - 2 over.
Also a Large un- identified raptor !
It was dark with No white parts ,siloetted against a cloudy sky , I'd say larger than a Common Buzzard ,with thicker ,longer rounded wings held flat with a short triangular tail .
As a cormorant came close I could see it dwarfed it as it headed North.
I've ruled out Osprey, Honey buzzard ,Common Buzzard , Raven or Harrier sp.
