Movement through the Valley

Whilst working at Duke St today noticed that for large periods of the day there was a steady stream of Swifts moving up the valley coming from Hebden end and heading towards Todmorden, smaller numbers of swallows were also moving through.

At approx 1pm 4 Curlew joined the exodus but they turned towards Stoodley Pike as they got level with Duke Street.

Other birds of note in the area a single Sparrowhawk (observed without bins) probably a male judging the size, circled briefly before heading at speed towards Jumble Hole.
