Its good to hear they were there yesterday, and probably means simply that they were elsewhere in the vicinity when I passed by. A couple of other anecdotes, relating to the visit by me and Barbara Allan on Wednesday morning:
The essential message is to keep checking.
A somewhat worrying sight this morning, from the view of sitting birds was the half-eaten corpse of a sheep about 300m NE. Given that said cadaver wasn't there on Wednesday I suspect that fox or wild/feral dog are the likely villains and don't believe they'd pass up feathered white meat if it was available.
WRT skylarks my records of this area show them to be recorded more or less every month. I suspect the variation which is apparent is due to the amount of singing they do, together with whether an observer has been through the Plain in a given month. July/August seems to be the usual start of the singing season which goes through to about January.
