Other news today

The Whooper Swans from yesterday on Mixenden Reservoir were still there this morning (MM) but they had gone at some time during the day before mid - afternoon though 21 Canada Geese there and 2 f Goldeneye still.

34 Curlew was a good number over Ogden this afternoon (AT)

Also at Ogden late afternoon, a Kestrel and a Sparrowhawk, both hunting the clough below the reservoir.  Lower down the valley at  Lower Brockholes was 1 Little Owl near the golf course.

Female Blackcap still coming to the garden feeder in Lee Mount. It seems to come early on then must head off somewhere else for the rest of the day (?)
Also around 25 Redwings this morning in Shroggs Park - they seem to like the tree areas around the Park Lodge in Lee Mount Road possibly roosting in the thick holly bushes there.
