A wet afternoon looked spot on for some Rookery nest counts before the leaves come on the trees otherwise its then impossible. Thanks to all those who have returned counts already.
There is still the upper valley areas - Matt is doing 3 colonies near Hebden Bridge. If anyone can check the colonies in Todmorden that would be a big help as Jeff used to do them but has moved east ! Hope you're ok Jeff? we are missing you !!
The other known colonies are being covered but there are several areas where we have no known colonies. These are Norwood Green, Shelf, Rastrick (other than Tofts Grove), Elland area, and Warley (though we have Newlands). If anyone has information on colonies in these areas please do a count and let me know - Many thanks - Dave
A good number of Swallows (maybe 40+) and a few House Martins mainly on the fishing lake with a few on the ski lake at Cromwell bottom this afternoon. c12 Tree Sparrows at the Clifton site in the pouring rain!
