Mixenden Res'r and Moor End

Just 2 female type Goldeneye on Mixenden this afternoon.
1 adult Lesser Black-backed Gull with c100 mixed Black-headed and Common Gulls
I also found a flock of c30 Siskin feeding in the tall alders just by the Clough Lane/ Mixenden Road mini roundabout though I couldn't find any Redpoll with them.

Moor End - on the reclaimed landfill site
c20 Meadow Pipits
38 Lapwings
c30 Fieldfare
c50 Starlings
3 Herring Gulls >W

The Fieldfare and Starlings kept coming up to the field behind the New Inn but I didn't see the Lapwings come up.

A nice find on the Siskin in such an exposed area. They usually skulk in the plantations.
