Other news

From Ringstone today (Steve L and Tony M)
2 Whinchat in the big hedge opposite the farm in the fields just below the res'r
1 Whitethroat around the shoreline area scrub earlier today

And at Scammonden nearby a pair of Little Grebes with 2 small chicks seen  riding on mum's back and the male fetching small fish for them. This must be really late for breeding Little Grebe in our area even though according to BWP they can have up to three broods this may be a first brood this year with the weather fluctuations (?)

Just one Swift over this morning and a Nuthatch on the garden feeder this evening (black sunflower seed) and another Nuthatch reported from a garden in Cragg Lane, Wheatley as well today.
