Pepper Hill

An hour or so around the hilltop this morning. A very blustery wind but it stayed dry.
3 Skylarks were the best. Pleased there are some back there.
1 Green Woodpecker heard
2 Buzzards distant
2 Sparrowhawks over Shibden
6 Herring Gulls >W
Pair of Goosander high >SW - they don't half fly at speed, aided no doubt by that streamlined appearance in flight.

John L also had some photos of some at Coach Road area I think but they have been scarce this winter. Usually a small flock winter at Swales but that site has gone off all told.

Yes Dave/Andy
I saw one on Coach Road.
Seems like an age ago now.
They are very rare so far.
