Dropped in on Eastwood Sewage works as I was passing, vaguely hoping for an early sand martin as they are popping up all over the country. Nothing doing on that front, but a singing chiffchaff was more than a consolation. A pair of goosander were on the canal.
Also got a reliable report of a red kite over Craggies restaurant at the top of Cragg Vale yesterday. No photos, but the observer is a birdwatcher and observed through binoculars.
