Cold Edge

It was very cold up there this morning - nothing new there then!!!
Reward was 2 male Ring Ouzels above the top dam in fields between Moorlands Farm and Withens Head Farm. I got some distant shots and will see if they are good enough for posting later on.
No sign of any Wheatears.
1 probable White Wagtail near the former Moorcock pub and now a farm.
2 Grey Heron
Pair Goosander
2 f Goldeneye
2 Tufted Duck
Lots of Meadow Pipits
2 Reed Bunting
Usual Curlew, Lapwing and 3 Snipe "drumming"
Gulls are well gone now

1 Little Owl calling
