Local Downer

Back to Crap; SH 1040 hrs. 2 Linnet, 3 Skylark, c14 Meadow Pipit, 1 LBB & BH gull. WW in bush Radio mast compound.

This scrape has recently appeared on the Eastern slope. Lets hope it doesn't go away for a few years at least.

Ogden Res: 6 Cormorant, usual gulls, 1 Wren. Plenty of noise from visitors. The lake was higher when I left it; tears can move mountains and rivers.
A walk across the golf course produced?
- I can't remember it was so barren.

Lo and behold Stod Fold to Mixenden lifted the spirits somewhat. 3 Blackbird, 5 Goldfinch, c11 Linnet & same no. Pied Wagtail plus c13 BH gulls in or around same field. Also several Swallow and 3/4 House Martin plus few Jackdaw here.
Further down the lane Swallows were gathering on telephone wires ready for the off and a single Collared Dove was seen.
