This morning a Lesser Black-backed Gull flies up the valley. The open fields between villages seem to be a regular flyway. A Herring Gull follows along the same flightpath a minute later.
As sunset approaches, Carrion Crows take a rather different route, crossing the wood on their way up the valley. They travel in pairs. In the space of twenty minutes, five or six pairs follow the same route.
Robins are chasing each other around our back garden. Our resident Blackbird 'White-tail' is also chasing his rivals around a territory which extends from our back garden to the edge of the wood almost a hundred yards away.
