Bradshaw to Stod Fold

A tale of two halves; starting good and ending badly.

Bradshaw halfway down/up Blind Lane 5 Redpoll flying around then landing briefly in the plantation. 3 Swift also in the area.
Corner Rocks Lane a singing and displaying Whitethroat.

Ogden Res WW seen with food dropping down to probable nest below a Willow appropriately. 2 more WW, Blackcap & Chiffchaff. Song Thrush, pr Blackbird & Chaffinch.
3 LBBG in different age phases, c19 BH & 1 Common Gull. I didn't  catch up with the leg ringed bird.
The golf course was deadly: Pheasant brood, few Goldfinch & Meadow Pipit. 1 male Reed Bunting.
Stod Fold had 4 House Martin & 2 Swallow along with a few Jackdaw. It was here that a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions took place; I lost my camera case. Boo bleedin hoo.
