Sunday 25 February 2018

Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - Water Rail heard, 6 Reed Bunting, pair of Bullfinch plus two Long-tailed Tits. The birds were pulling spider's webs from between gaps in the wall. Also pulling strips of the raspberry canes & taking them into the gorse.

Eldwick - Sherriff Lane
A mixed flock of thrushes feeding in a field consisted of 50 Redwing, 20 Fieldfare and three Mistle Thrush.  Whilst approaching Brackenhall Countryside Centre a raptor with a large white rump flew up from trees and flew towards Baildon.  I strongly suspect it was a Harris Hawk (an escapee!)
