East of Brighouse

Sand Martins are exploring nest sites by the canal at Colnebridge,
and at least five were over the Calder nearby.
A Mute Swan was on the river as well.
Kirklees Hall area held at least five calling Yellowhammers, a Little Owl,
a Kestrel, three Lapwings in the fields and nesting Great Tits.
On Clifton Lagoon a pair of Coot were feeding three juvs, and a Kingfisher
was on the river.
Two Buzzards were around (being mobbed by Swifts), one with very worn feathers and one in
'pristine' condition.
