Cock Hill

An afternoon walk between Cock Hill and Fly Flatts

- 9 golden plover
- 1 snipe
- 30+ red grouse
- 3 kestrel
- plus the dogs flushed a grey squirrel, which ran straight at us, and seeing the dogs climbed up my partners leg and onto her back. I suspect most of you heard her scream, wherever you were in Calderdale.

Redwings were passing over Jumble Hole this morning. Hard to tell how many. More piling over tonight.

I heard the scream over at Ogden !!!! That's an unusual episode Matt. Hope she is over the shock ?!
Grey Squirrels are definately on high ground at the moment. 1 at Whiteholme and another at Fly Flats last week. Maybe juveniles looking for new territory?

It did look like a juvenile. After a brief but colourful bout of tourettes, she's fully recovered. Not sure how the squirrel feels.
