I went over the top at Shackleton Knoll to check the fields near Walshaw where the 2 Yellow Wagtails were found earlier this week by Pete Grba. They had obviously moved on, after an extensive search scanning the fields. There were over 25 Pied Wagtails there with 30+ Meadow Pipits and a few Chaffinch and Goldfinch and c40 Starlings
6 Curlew were disturbed in the fields, so it was good to find some when they have usually moved off the moors to the coast by now.
1 Great Spotted Woodpecker
5 Stock Doves
Lots of Swallows around the farms
Then the rain and wind set in !!
