|YOU TRY AND FINDING A GOLDEN PLOVER/LARK/LAPWING IN THAT FIELD...HAVE FUN|
I thought I'd litter this post with some "scenic" efforts to give you an idea what the place looks like as well as some of the birds I found today.
|HAY, WHAT'S THAT OVER THERE?...SORRY|
|PRETTY GOOD FOR SHORT EARED OWLS IN THE WINTER|
I spent most of the day around the grey concrete blocks you see in the image below.
One advantage of the area around the grey structures is that there are concrete "ditches" around them which allows you to sneak up to birds without being spotted, here's some Meadow Pipits I crept up on.

|MEADOW PIPIT WITH FOOD|
Running up the middle of the fields is this wild area in the three images below, there were still some butterflies floating around. If you decide to walk up this way, becareful there are some hidden manholes and very deep rabbit holes, I know one photographer who twice fell down one manhole up to his waist, smashing his camera, tread with care....and no it wasn't me...YET!
