Autumn begins Woodoaks early September

I was hoping for Red kites following the Combine harvester but alas that was yesterday not
today ,there was also Common Buzzard around.However as I progressed through the
farm I noted an adult Green Woodpecker and juvenile in the orchard and a good number
of Wood Pigeons as I reached the higher ground.On the ridge I looked for raptors but to no avail
although I did flush a covey of Red legged Partridges probably indicating breeding.

I  checked the upper fields where the Friesians were grazing for Yellow Wagtails but only
succeeded flushing two Skylark.
Bottom Wood was still in glorious green no dappled yellows and browns of Autumn yet.
