Blake Dean 6th April 2013

On a beautiful morning, I took a walk round Blake Dean to see if any ouzels were back.  There weren't, but I did see numerous lapwings, curlews, displaying meadow pipits, singing skylarks and a couple of resplendent looking golden plover behind the Ridge.

Regards, Chris

Went up there with Andy Huyton this afternoon with the same idea in mind, no Ring Ouzel or Wheatear for us either but we did well for Lapwing (40+) Golden Plover (at least 15) and Oystercatcher and Curlew also present. Also had the strange site of a day flying Bat that appeared to go back to roost on one of the craggy rocks. Also had a pair of Wigeon and 9 Teal at Ringstone.
