LH Bank of river Monnow. Approx 5 miles upstream of Monmouth.

Main Sighting: Buzzards
38 Buzzards counted in one field. The field had been heavily spread with slurry, cultivated and reseeded with grass seed. Grass now part grown. I would be interested to know if numbers like this had been recorded previously. It was after rain. I am guessing Earthworms were the attraction.
