RE: Culcheth


188 Stock Doves in ploughed field behind Hanging Birch Farm (Holcroft Lane) this afternoon. The birds were in a part of the field not visible from the main road. Also here 140+ Linnets. I had stopped to check out what I though was a flock of Corn Buntings (had 30+ here last 2 winters) but a Buzzard spooked the birds before I got a chance to view them properly.

Four yellow wagtails around the driveway to Franks Farm on Holcroft Lane at 6.10am this morning, with at least one more unseen bird calling to the west (probably around the entrance to the field that's blocked off by a felled tree). Also in the area were two corn buntings and a pair of grey partridge.
