Swales Moor and Mixenden Res'r

At least 1 Twite positive i d  (possibly another?) in with the Linnet flock of 28 this morning along Ringby Lane. They are a tricky lot, very flighty and difficult to approach as well as finding the flock in the first place!
1 Skylark on the top
Little else other than the usual corvids and a few Common Gulls in the fields
1 female Sparrowhawk nearby

Mixenden Res'r
4 Goldeneye including 1 drake
Also a drake Tufted Duck
c 100 B H Gulls and a few Common Gulls

Nice Twite Dave, the flock seem to hang about in the quarry at the far side where there is a banking of wild flowers and weeds.
