Had an hour walking from Ryburn up to Baitings and back yesterday afternoon, pleasant when the sun was out but didn't feel like spring!
3 Canada Geese
6 Willow Warbler
Chiffchaff calling but couldn't see it!
2 Song Thrush nest building
1 Dipper, I'm presuming a different one to the other pair we see as this one was up stream close to Baitings??
2 Curlew flew over calling
And another surprise was a Common Sandpiper, moving up stream between the two dams
A couple of resent photos from the last weeks. The Short-eared Owls were just outside our area, one in the warm setting sun of the week before, the other a week later in snow!
The Common Sandpiper was one of a pair that were at Ringstone and Curlew over Dean Head cheers
