Broadhead Clough, Cragg Vale

With Alan T, we went looking for Woodcock last night - and we were not disappointed with 3 birds roding together (maybe an adult with young birds (??) plus possibly one other individual. They didn't show till around 9:30 pm so we had quite a wait for them to appear.

On the way back down in then dark we had surprise to come across a colony of Ghost Moths 'dancing' over the grasses in one of the fields.

The natural world is full of nice surprises.

These were the best shots I could get of a Woodcock in the fading light though I'm sure Alan got some better ones ?

Nice one Dave & Alan.
Worth the wait - a bird I seldom see.
