Swalesmoor after Work

                    Had a walk up Swalesmoor after work but not much to see,
                    a few Greenfinch & Chaffinch at bottom of Ringby Lane,
                    12 Linnet flying about and 4 Meadow Pipit's on highest
                    field, 1 Kestrel hovering nr the ski slope.
                               Garden had 10 Goldfinch on feeders arguing a lot,
                    4 Greenfinch, 2 Chaffinch, 2 Dunnock and 1 Blue Tit and
                    a low flyover by 3 Whooper Swans going towards Northowram
                    or Oakenshaw where they've been seen congregating in Caldene
                    fields. Oh and two what looked like grouse flying off from
                    Ringby quarry.


  1. You did well to get up Swalesmoor on such a poor day Dave.

  2. It brightened up for about an hour John and had the place to myself but no joy with the Little Owl, the two grouse like birds puzzled me though.
