Shibden Head

A great morning for a walk around the upper reaches of Shibden Valley and Shibden Head though it was a struggle to find any small birds. Plenty of Jackdaws, Magpies and Carrion Crows and a good few Stock Doves and Woodpigeons as well as Black-headed and Common gulls in the fields.
2 Kestrels were the only raptors
c15 Redwings, 5 Mistle Thrush and just 3 Starlings.
1 Meadow Pipit over Corporal Lane
No sign of any tit flocks other than a few Blue, Great, Coal and LTT's scattered about. Hardly any finches about !
A brief look in Bare Head Tunnel located 4 hibernating Herald Moths.
