Luddenden Dean

This afternoon - some interesting 'stuff' especially finding 5 Chiff-chaff's with at least 3 at the bottom of the hill just before the 'catty' pub and another 2 in the copse near Mr Schofield's farm. I did wonder if they had turned up after that wind turned easterly this afternoon and I was on the prowl for anything else interesting with them - but just found L T Tits, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Goldcrests and Bullfinch with them. Might give the same spots a try tomorrow depending on the weather (and time)!.

9 Mistle Thrushes ( after a lean spell with them ) - maybe incomers from the continent as I heard of a few Redwings inland as well in the last day or two at migration watch-points including Oxenhope and Winter Hill.
1 Green Woodpecker also heard in the dean
3 Little Owls in the usual spots
