Sopley Common Birds

The title says it all, this post is photos of birds spotted at Sopley Common before the strict covid -9 virus rules around movement came into force.

There are 3 different species of birds, a tree Pipit (Anthus trivialis), a Stonechat (Saxicola torquata), and Goldfinches (Carduelis carduelis).

Here the tree pipit took after the 1st part of its name, sitting in a tree.
