Ogden - Back Lane area

A couple of hours on the moor this morning - target - migrating Osprey - nothing doing on that score !
3 Cormorant >W
1 Common Buzzard >SW
A constant trickle through the Col (towards Foreside/Denholme Clough) of Swallows (c100) and Meadow Pipits (c80) all >W along with 2 House Martins.
2 Skylark
1 Green Woodpecker
1 Kestrel

I heard some faint squeaking from the wall and a small Stoat ran across the track in front of me which I guess was a 'kit' of the above adult female. There may have been others but she alarmed and all went quiet till she peeped through the wall in front of me !
