Whilst you are out walking and exploring the open farmland and meadows that surround Martha’s Orchard, listen out for the song of the Corn Bunting. Their wonderful song sounds just like a set of jangling keys. You can often see them perched prominently on a hedge, post or wire and they nest on the ground in rough grassy margins or arable crops. Similar to the Skylark, but the best way to tell them apart is that the Corn Bunting has a much thicker bill and no crest. The Corn Bunting is a farmland bird that has suffered a dramatic decline and is now listed in the UK as a Red List Species.
