|A silken tent made by caterpillars|
The air was alive with bird song throughout our walk over the heath. The chorus included blackcaps, chiffchaffs, great tits, blue tits, coal tits, long-tailed tits, robins, wrens, dunnocks, jays, lots of willow warblers and the odd song thrush. At one point, I even heard the loud 'jep' call of a great spotted woodpecker. We also had a good view of a kestrel sitting on top of a tree, who was watching the ground for any lizards or rodents to eat.
