Lower Horse Paddock, Broadcroft Quarry Lane and Broadcroft Butterfly Reserve

A slightly sunnier day, well it was until I started my walk, and then it clouded over. Main highlights today were 2 Greenfinches along the lane, 5 Song Thrushes in the Lower Horse paddock where there were also the overwintering pair of Stonechats and 4 Meadow Pipits.

Here are a few images and videos from today:
