Tried again in the woodland areas this morning. Dry weather this time but still a pretty cool >NE wind.
I was trying for Tree Pipit, a really scarce bird in Calderdale in recent years though there are a couple of traditional sights unfortunately now deserted. A shame to miss out on this summer visitors lovely song. Nothing doing !
A good show of Willow Warblers with 10+ singing along with a single Chiffchaff and a Blackcap.
Distant Sparrowhawk, Kestrel and Buzzard and 4 Curlew over >N
16 Golden Plover, but distant over towards The Withens
5 Wheatears, 1 Linnet, 2 Swallows and 2 House Martins over the lower end of the golf course.
