A great afternoon enjoying the Whoopers. They all left >N at 16:20 from PG. I bet that was a great sight Pete. Good to see a few local birders there this afternoon as well.
A recount from BS made it 244 - that must be a record for Calderdale.
I have just tried to collate all today's reports from the times and directions sparked off by Andy C and Dave F - thanks. Looks like 437 altogether ! And some may well have been missed??!
244 at Mixenden (53+6+185) AC. BS. DB. DJS. JS. PG. NO. SB. PS. TT and DB et al

Apologies if I missed anyone! Thanks to everyone for the reports and updates. A lot of interest as well from people in Mixenden who weren't put off by the nearby quad bikes in the plantation!!!
