Ogden and Mixenden area

Between Mixenden and Ogden reservoirs late morning.
Lots of House Martins and Swallows about in that area but unfortunately this young Swallow, recently out of the nest, looked like a roadside casualty outside Mount Zion chapel. It's a  tough life for all our birds but especially hazardous for young ones !

1 juvenile Green Woodpecker
1 Little Owl
A few Meadow Pipits, Pied Wagtails, Linnets and Goldfinch's about.
We ended up collecting a few bilberries - but don't tell BS. He's been waiting around 5 years for a pie we promised him !
