Little Egret etc

Little Egret (juvenile) at Cromwell Bottom - photo from Mike Henshaw taken on Saturday 8th August. This bird or another juvenile was seen towards Sowerby Bridge earlier today (Steve B)

Also from Mike - a Hobby over Brighouse >S at 16:10 this afternoon at the same time as a very large raptor heading in the same direction could have been an Osprey but just too distant and brief for a firm identification - bad luck Mike.! Another that got away!

2 Tree Pipits flyovers also reported this afternoon over Soil hill from Daniel B around 16:45

I tried Pepper Hill this afternoon above Claremount but just found a Kestrel and not much else bird-wise - well other than a Hummingbird Hawkmoth which is always a special moth and that was after an Elephant Hawkmoth in the moth trap this morning. See the Moth Blog (Link to the right of this posting) for some record shots.
