Its not been a good week - weather !!

Persistent rain this last week but a few items of note.
Several reports of Skylarks starting to appear but they will probably need a fine spell to find some more - same for Meadow Pipits.
A few Curlew and Oystercatcher's nearby in the Bradford area though just a few scattered reports in Calderdale so far. Lapwings starting to appear in the uplands
Still a few Goldeneye around with reports from Ogden , Mixenden and Withens Clough Reservoirs.
Redwings reported today from Savile Park, c40 in Norland and c60 in Shroggs Park
Woodcock today flushed from the edge of a footpath in the woodland at Ogden.
Pair of Robins feeding 4 young ones in a window box nest near Willow Field

Lets hope the weather 'picks up' soon.

Woodcocks- a nightmare to find/see, closest I got is footprints in snow at moselden
