Maiden Castle

Dorchester was today's venue for a day out with my girls, and before we went into town we took Honey for a walk around Maiden Castle. 

It was fairly windy, but what a great place for a wander and so many birds!  I was really surprised at just how many Corn Buntings were around, 15+ being a conservative estimate. Also saw several Yellowhammer, really good numbers of Skylark, six Wheatear (which looked Greenlandy) and most surprisingly for me two Grey Partridge.  These were the first Grey Part's I've seen for flipping ages so was dead chuffed.  I really hope you enjoy this video - the only footage I managed of the Partridge is at the end...
