The shots below show the unwanted individual being chased and harassed by the other three. The first picture is of him/her having it away on his toes!
Yellowhammers Emberiza citrinella seemed to be everywhere which is good news as we know that these birds are in decline along with a number of other farmland species. Along a stretch of farmland hedgerow measuring less than a couple of kilometres we counted over fifteen singing male birds. Unfortunately getting a decent photograph proved tricky as the camera's autofocus system was determined to focus on twigs.
Pretty ropey pictures indeed, but better than the picture of a Peregrine Falcon that was surveying the fields from a pylon!
