Shipley Glen & Glovershaw
A Green Woodpecker flew across the Glen Road and an adult Great Spotted with two juveniles, passed through the gardens on Lucy Hall Drive.  At Glovershaw, three pairs of Grey Partridge were seen, four Snipe were flushed from watery hollows and an alert Redshank and lots of Lapwings circled their breeding area.  Ten Willow Warblers and four Reed Buntings were heard during the walk.
