A Whooper of a Day

                Soil Hill quiet apart from pipits & skylarks 2 grouse
                and a Raptor flying off.
                Went to a certain spot in search of a Little Owl but no joy.
                Better luck up at Fly Flatts area as a Buzzard was circling
                then hovering nr lake, 5 Greylags and plenty of Canada's,
                1 Kestrel, 6 Curlew 20+ Meadow Pipits and 2 Wheatear.
               
                Garden 10 Goldfinch, 8 Chaffinch, 4 Greenfinch,
                2 Dunnock, 2 Collared Dove, 2 Blackbirds, 6 Starlings,
                1 Blue Tit and 60+ Whooper Swans flying over and
                1 Kestrel hovering in field.

Between 9 and half past Dave but some had flown over before that, they were coming from the Oakenshaw, Northowram direction towards Mixenden it was a great sight.
