Pretty quiet in the dean today but one or two things of interest especially c6 Lesser Redpoll in an area of recent tree planting. I guess these are breeding birds which are scarce in Calderdale with only a handful of known sites. Also a pair of Siskin - another scarce breeder in our area. 3 singing Goldcrests was also good to hear but no sign of any Spotted Fly's.
Elsewhere 2 Little Owls
c100 Swifts feeding over the dean
Waders were very quiet other than 1 Snipe 'drumming', a couple of Lapwing and a few Curlew with 11 of the latter high over the moor heading SW
