Private Wetland Site
Four Common Terns were over the fishing lake and various Warblers were present including Sedge Warbler, Reed Warbler (seven), Whitethroat and a couple of Garden Warblers.
There was almost certainly two pairs of Grey Partridge here and Mute Swans were protecting their young.
Irene and John Flood.

Cullingworth
A Grey Wagtail was seen in a Cullingworth garden.

Glovershaw
Yet again there were four female Wheatears feeding in the fields by the dilapidated sheds.  A pair of Grey Partridge flew from the moorside and Swifts, Swallows and House Martins were about.
