Baildon Moor
A walk around the northern slopes of the moor: four pairs of Linnets, eight male Reed Buntings and a male Bullfinch.  A male Stonechat was seen by the quarry and a juvenile female was near the cabins at Pennithorn.  Adult Oystercatchers and their brood were once more at the "reservoirs" and a Cuckoo was heard from Faweather Grange area.
