Luddenden Dean

This afternoon we went to check previous sites for Redstart and Flycatchers but unfortunately nothing doing. The NW wind was still blowing hard so it was difficult to listen for songbirds even in the valley.
15+ Swifts around the 'catty' plus the usual woodland species in the valley.
Nearby at least 2 pairs of Lapwing with chicks 1 pair brooding chicks under the wing and another pair with 2 small chicks feeding in the fields.
1 L B B Gull over >NW
4+ Curlew
Several Linnets about and 2 pairs Skylark and a few Meadow Pipits
1 Sparrowhawk
