Cragg Vale and Withens Clough

We tried up there this morning in the hope of either Wood Warbler (heard near the Hinchcliffe Arms last week from BL), along with Tree Pipit and Grasshopper Warbler but drew blanks on all 3 !
A lovely day all the same we headed up the clough and around the res'r (no shoreline)
2 Stonechat
6+ House Martins at a nest site
2 Blackcap
1 Chiff-chaff
4+ Willow Warblers
1 Grey Wagtail
1 Kestrel
1 Green Woodpecker
c10 Reed Buntings
73 Canada's
1 Common Sandpiper

Back home this afternoon and had a great surprise with a Humming Bird Hawkmoth feeding around the garden planters - dashed for camera but it was off - as they do, at a sprint !
