Yesterday (and today)

Well done to A T yesterday for 6 Swallows over Ringstone and a female  Common Scoter. Also via BS from  HC - a Swallow at Fly Flats
Another report of a local Barn Owl is fantastic news from SN via BS - see Brians blog.
Castle Carr Road - no sign of any Wheatears after the few we had last week - I guess there will be a second wave soon though they are very scarce breeders nowadays yet we get plenty Spring and returning Autumn migrants.

From Matt - a nice early Willow Warbler at Jumble Hole (just past Hebden Bridge)
and from NR at Mytholmroyd - Scout area - 5 Chiff-chaffs singing this morning
Cream crown Marsh Harrier >W over Copley this afternoon. Ian S
Peregrine and a Sparrowhawk over Beacon Hill and a Kestrel carrying prey near the town centre all late morning.
Drake Common Scoter on the Ski-lake at Cromwell Bottom this morning could still be there ? From AT and GWH et al.
Swallow over Northowram this evening from AC
