Fly Flatts and Withens Head

Fly Flatts
I went up to top the Nyger seed up at the feeding station but will be worth continuing in another year or two if the downward trend continues? - no Twite again today though BS had 4 last weekend
1 Wheatear
1 Kestrel
c20 Swifts >SW
Just the usual Canada's and Greylags but no waders - though the water level is down 6" from the overflow !

Withens Head
4 juv Wheatears

Yes - and I have 25kg on order !
Around £40 Elland Pet Supplies. The last lot was funded by CBCG so I was grateful for that.
I just hope they hang on in there. I wonder if there has been more natural seed for them this time with all the hay meadows delayed in farmers cutting the fields - if so, that is better than feeding.
