A Whimbrel was at Leeshaw in the late afternoon. It was in the same ploughed field as one in 2010. This one left after an hour. Two Wheatear had been seen earlier.
Keith Moir and Brian Vickers.
Trough Lane and Leeming, Oxenhope
There was a Little Owl at each of these locations.
Wheatears are continuing to pass through this area with another four females this afternoon. Whilst hailstone pelted down a Reed Bunting sang and a couple of Grey Partridges flew from the path as I headed back to the car.
|Glovershaw, and Baildon Moor are good places to see Grey Partridge. Here's a photo taken by David Barker in 2010.|
