Recent News

Lee Mount - the last Swifts -so far!! were 3 on the 16th August - still a chance of some late birds moving through, hopefully!

7  Black Terns were reported moving north through Elland Gravel Pits on Saturday 24th August morning around 11 am though we don't know who the observer was as we only picked up the report from the BirdGuides web site. Any further information would be appreciated for this excellent record.

From Roger R - 2 Greenshank at Green Withens Res'r on 25th August - the day previously BS reported other Greenshanks heading our way from the Oxenhope area!

From NCD on the 26th August at Roils Head there were at least 5 Spotted Flycatchers, 1 Redstart, 2 Whinchat, 1 Whitethroat and around 8 Willow Warblers - migrants were mainly in the north facing shelter belt near the playing fields.

A Little Egret yesterday (Tuesday 27th August) from GWH was a very good record too - see Cromwell Bottom blog for photo's and with thanks to Mike H for passing the information on.
