Thursday 18th May 2017

There was a pair of Stonechats near the quarry (2nd tee), where pairs have traditionally nested.  In the area,  around the northern area of Baildon Moor, breeding pairs included Linnets, Dunnocks, Reed Buntings and Red Grouse.  15 singing Willow Warblers were counted on the walk.  A pair of Red Kites flew over Pennithorn and a pair of Whitethroats had established themselves where the Grasshopper Warblers bred successfully last year.  A few Swifts went by, Meadow Pipits were carrying food and a small flock of Starlings with juveniles was seen near the plantation.
