Young birds

Loads of newly fledged birds in the last few days including:
- 1 young dipper on stream at Jumble Hole
- 3 young kestrels and an adult between Jumble Hole and Erringden
- 2 juv green woodpecker Jumble Hole
- 2 seperate nests of goldfinch on ivy either side of my house (Jumble Hole)
- lots of Siskin suddenly being heard around here at the moment, presumably some recently fledged
- 3 kingfishers today from the river bridge leading to Hebden Bridge train station (downstream side) - 1 well fledged juv being attended to by 2 adults (photo is taken on a mobile, hence the dodgy quality)
