Hebden Bridge and Hardcastle Crags

Start at the cafe and end up at the cafe was a good move for us today!!
We walked up from Hebden Bridge to the crags ie. Gibson Mill and return but birds were scarce.
1 GreenWoodpecker
1 Great Spotted Woodpecker
2+ Nuthatch
Surprisingly only 1 Dipper, in the top pond at Gibson Mill
Blue, Great, Coal and some L T Tits and a Treecreeper.
A pair of Kestrels, one carrying long grass looked like nesting material though there is a possibility it had caught a vole with the grass and was being closely followed by the male?
Not a lot else but an enjoyable walk.
Grey Herons already on territories
No reports of 'pinkies' yet today.
