Walk yesterday: Not a lot to be seen or heard in the cold wind, but we did see
a Brown Hare on the Midgley Moor/ Luddenden Dean edge,
a Little Owl enter a hole in a stone wall no doubt where its nest was (picked up pellets outside the hole - this pair feeds on small mammals)
and while watching a Sparrowhawk on a post at Old Town witnessed it streak past us into a paddock; the small birds scattering in panic.
