Blows down

A nice early morning walk with the RSPB on Sunday at Blows down we first walked by the paddocks with lots of singing birds in the spring blossom and lots of Blackbirds in the paddocks. Alongside the paddock had good views of a singing Blackcap and a Song Thrush. Then walked along the bottom where we had a view of a Female Wheatear feeding in the grass and a few singing Blackcaps and Chiff-chaffs and 2 Linnets seen feeding in the field grass.

We then walked up the hills were quite a few Skylarks were in song and a few Meadow Pipits were flying over. Walking up to the chalk pits with a good view of Dunstable and Warblers in full song with a Willow Warbler been heard in the distance.

After a friendly account with a few of the local cows we walked to the golf course and back were we saw a few Yellowhammers and a few Butterflies out on the wing.

We then headed back across the hills where a group of Buzzards were soaring in the thermals when a Ring Ouzel flew across the path and landed in a nearby tree allowing everyone to get a good view of this migrant before we ended the walk with a nice view of a singing Meadow Pipit
