Cold Edge/Withens Head

Male Ring Ouzel yesterday in the fields below The Withens but no sign of it today. I did get some distant shots in the drizzle yesterday but they were not good for posting !
Also from BS yesterday, another female Ring Ouzel was in Slaughter Gap - down the Pennine Way from Nolstar in Withens Road. See West Yorkshire Birding blog with some photos.

Withens - 10+ Wheatears in that area this morning, mostly males, looking in immaculate plumage.
Pair of Stonechats at Cold Edge. Plenty mipits and a few Swallows and Linnets
1 Little Grebe
1 Moorhen
2 Tufted Duck
 Female Stonechat
Male Stonechat
