As I was going through the photos from yesterday's survey at Hemblington Church, I realised that I'd left my Hornet Clearwing lure hanging in the poplar hedge! I drove up to the church to retrieve the lure and was instantly struck by the number of Yellowhammers and Whitethroats I could see and hear! Neither of these figured in our count, despite conditions being almost identical.
I decided to walk around the block, past the Alpaca farm to obtain some estimate of overall numbers. The result was astonishing: twenty+ Whitethroats and twelve Yellowhammers! Additionally I came across a Marsh Harrier with two red/orange wing tags, as well ass Norfolk and Brown Hawkers.
