Brownfield birding

Wildlife hotspot or derelict wasteland depends on your point of view, mine is firmly footed in the former, it sends a shiver down my spine when people refer to places such as The British as derelict - wake up! Todays foray around this gorse covered wonderland offered good views of singing yellowhammer, numerous whitethroat, several linnet and song thrush. However, the most widespread, active and vocal bird was redpoll. Noteworthy butterflies, include orange tip, small copper and several speckled wood.
