Late afternoon /early evening walk around the dean found it pretty quiet for passerines in the strong SW wind though it was pretty warm.
1 Green Woodpecker
c150 Swallows and c20 House Martins high over Midgley Moor
1 Common Buzzard to the south
4 Stock Doves near 'the catty'
2 Little Owls in the dean with another family group of 5 close together near Castle Carr Road
Nice to meet Andrew enjoying the view and thanks for making yourself known as a fellow birdwatcher and follower of the blog!
