Crow Hill Area Sunday

Crow Hill near Sowerby, early pm.
Still plenty of snow in drifts in places up there. Good to be out  in the sunshine without a biting wind blowing. It beats shopping.

20 golden plover.
29 lapwing
9 curlew.
5 skylarks.
40+ meadow pipits.
2 reed bunting (1m & 1f.)
2 pied wagtail.
15 goldfinch.

No wheatear.

Tend to find passage Wheatears only around that area and then they tend to be down towards Noah Dale area (above Cottonstones)

Aye, I know. Sometimes get them in good numbers at this time and again at the backend.
