Soil Hill

Few sightings from the Hill for the last few days:

20th Jan
7 Golden Plover circling the hill, fairly vocal

18th Jan
1 Stock Dove flew over

07th Jan
1 Green Woodpecker on Taylor Lane

A Little Owl and pr Stonechat have also been present on and off during January

Patch ticks for me have been Grey Wagtail feeding in a drainage ditch down Taylor Lane, and Goldeneye, which I have shamelessly scoped on Mixenden Reservoir.

Daily visits have gained 33 points from 33 species for my Patchwork Challenge effort in 2017. Hopefully will be able to make a real fist of it this year

There were always Goldies present on the west summit by the scrape years ago, lets hope we can get them back. I used to scope the Gt Nth Diver on Mixenden from the hill.

Hi Daniel
Enjoyed the chat this aft.
Might have got a Goldie , this aft with Lapwing but the photo on my blog is very poor.
