At least three Spotted Flycatchers remain at Golcar Farm where they can be seen feeding and there was a single bird in the hedgerow behind Glovershaw Farm. Four Whinchats were flitting around the fields by Golcar Farm, but they were reluctant to settle, whilst at least 20 Meadow Pipits were using the walls and fences. There was a Wheatear on the Golf Course and another by the farm and Stock Dove, Grey Partridge a flock of 150 Starlings and three Red Grouse completed the picture.
I spent half an hour up at Whetstone Gate this afternoon. There were a number of Wheatear on the rocks to the right of the road on the straight stretch leading to the mast; I also saw an unusually large number of chats on the wall area to the right of the quarry; most of them were Whinchat .
