I went out again by bike yesterday and explored some public footpaths and byways around my area. I decided I'd head towards Pitsford and Moulton as they were quite close to home and easy to get to by bike.
I was a bit gutted as for all my pedalling efforts the best I saw were a few Blackcaps, a male Kestrel chasing and catching Pied Wagtails, one new Little Owl site in a tree by the side of the road at Moulton College by the time I got my camera out of the bag the owl had fled into it's hole and never came out (swine) and a large white rabbit (I kid you not), I turned down Spectacle Lane from the college end, it can be a bit dodgy down here at times with yoof's smoking weed and fly tippers tipping their waste which is a shame as the hedgerow was buzzing with small common species plus a few Yellow Wagtails in the first ploughed field, three buzzards circling overhead, more Blackcaps, one solitary Swallow (still no Swifts!) and a nice Grey Wagtail at the ford.
I was pushing my bike (makes it easier to photograph) up the hill in the lane heading towards Spectacle Lodge when a fox ran across the lane, missed it but a quick glance into the field next to the Lodge I spotted a Ring Ouzel....record shot time as the bird never came close enough which was a shame.

As a curious side bet if you're that way inclined if Man.Utd loose to Everton put some money on David Moyes being sacked, I heard he's being sacked regardless of the result after this weekend!!
