Swales Moor

Late morning no sign of any visible migration but the Linnet flock seems to be increasing with 80+ now but they are very mobile. I'm hoping they stay all winter and maybe attract some Twite. !
Also a good flock of 30+ Goldfinch
2 Skylarks on the top along with a few Meadow Pipits
3 Sparrowhawks
2 Kestrels
2 very distant Common Buzzards drifting high >SW
1 LBB Gull
Plenty Swallows and a few House Martins around
 Ovenden from Swales

Illingworth from Swales

Lee Mount
