Hardcastle Crags

We had a while mid-day, checking out the Wood Warbler spot up the hill by the wood pile - but drew a blank. That's 4 goes we have tried and failed for them and we are probably running out of time now this year. We live in hope !

On the plus side we did locate 2 Spotted Flycatchers - they are getting scarcer and scarcer now for us in Calderdale as they are in many parts of the country - but they are apparently doing much better in Scotland.

Oops - nearly forgot. On the way to the crags we had a Cuckoo fly over as we went through the other side of Mount Tabor.
