Cold Edge area

This morning
1 Little Grebe, 3 Tufted Duck and 19 Mallard were the only waterfowl and not a wader anywhere !
3 Wheatears near Withens Head
2 Little Owls near Moorlands Farm
2 Skylark
A good number of Linnet and Goldfinch feeding on thistle heads
Loads of Swallows and Meadow Pipits moving high >W  as well as lots of grounded mipits after overnight rain - both species impossible to count but probably 300+ of each species then as the morning went on they mostly disappeared having moved off as the day improved.
Not a raptor in sight and no other migrants other than 1 House Martin
Red Grouse on the moor
