Singing White-spotted Bluethroat

You may not hear it on these crude recordings, but the bird threw in identifiable mimicry of Swallow, Greenfinch, Green Sandpiper and Water Rail, plus other sounds that resembled the chirping of crickets.

Raven on Rabbit road-kill, Baston

As I was leaving the corner pits of Baston and Langtoft pits yesterday, a couple of Ravens flew low over, heading north. They were a Lincs tick for me. before they had gone far, they circled round and landed in one of the oaks on the Baston Outgang Road. It turns out they had seen a freshly splatted Rabbit and fancied a snack. The only problem as the quantity of traffic, which meant they kept having to go for quick circuits around the fields (hence flight shots). They looked a tad brown at the head end and a bit worn in the wing and tail feathers, both suggesting (at least to me) these were a pair of worn adults.
