Corn Buntings etc.!

Whilst at the Whiskered Tern twitch in Cambs, Frank t0ld me about a great place to see Corn Bunting and it turns out it was only a few miles from my house. I needed Corn Bunts for the year so decided to pop along today a try and get some pics. This place is a small patch of farm waste between Eyeworth and Ashwell and is actually pretty awesome! There were Yellow Wags everywhere:
Apparently there was a Whinchat present in the morning but unfortunately I couldn't find it. I did get onto at least 4 Wheatear though and got incredibly dirty whilst trying to stalk them! Such brilliant birds though:

As soon as I stepped out the car I heard what sounded like keys being jangled and knew there must be a Corn Bunting nearby. Actually there were several:

There were also plenty of Pied Wagtails and the odd Reed Bunting.
