Ogden area

We went on the top above the Reservoir this afternoon on the off chance of finding Emperor Moth on the moor but drew a blank there !
A Cuckoo was singing on and off at the top end of Ogden - above the clough leading towards Thornton Moor though we didn't see it.
1 Kestrel
Not much else other than a few Linnets, Meadow Pipits, Red Grouse, Swallows and a Skylark.
Very nice to feel the warmth of the sun today after all those chilling north easterlies recently.

Nice one on the Cuckoo Dave, my first Ogden Cuckoos were 22/5/15 and 11/6/16. Yet to get the 2017 bird.
