Warley Moor and Soil Hill

Warley Moor (but not Fly Flatts). It was really hard to find anything this morning it was so calm and still (not used to these conditions on the moor)! apart from plenty of Meadow Pipits on territory. Only 1 Skylark singing and even the Curlews were quiet.
1 Willow Warbler near Castle Carr top lodge
1 Swallow low over the moor >E
c20 Stock Doves on a ruined building
1 female Kestrel
1 Golden Plover
Still not a sign of any Twite up there
1 female Wheatear near Wainstalls

Later on, thanks to  a message from BS, sounded promising so I detoured to Soil Hill - 1 female Ring Ouzel was a reward though it took some finding (thanks Bri) and was distant so I got it through the scope - looked brilliant. There had been 3 there earlier thanks to DW.

Also another Ring Ouzel today near Rishworth from Andy
