Narroways, St Andrews Park and the station

A brief visit to Narroways this morning failed to produce many birds - a Magpie was carrying nesting material at Lynmouth Road and a Jay was calling nearby. Two fly-over Chaffinches and a singing Great Tit at the cutting, a couple of singing Goldfinches along the stony path. This Woodpigeon and a Robin near Church Field. Some crustose lichen which might be Lecidella elaeochroma seen growing on several trees.

Probable Lecidella elaeochroma

St Andrews Park produced several Starlings, a Pied Wagtail, a Herring Gull, a singing Greenfinch and several Goldfinches.

A male Blackcap showed well at the station along with 5 or so House Sparrows and a Great Tit.
