Tour of Local Area's

              Took a trip to CBNR this morning and bumped in to GH, AW, DL
              and had a good natter with Roy in the bird viewing area, it was fairly
              quiet on the bird life front the bonus was a Buzzard high up or was it the
              Marsh Harrier ? thats been seen locally it had the same missing gap in
              it's wing and the Kingfisher flying down river which I've not seen down
              there for a while, and the Field vole popped its head out to say hello.

              1 Buzzard ( Marsh Harrier ?)
              1 Grey Wagtail
              4 Blackcap
              3 Chiff Chaff
              4 Willow Warblers
              10 Canada's and the regular Tits and Finches
              1 LTT, 3 Wren
              2 Coot
              1 male Reed Bunting
              1 Sedge Warbler,  GH got a fine pic of one earlier as well
              and 2 Swift over the cabin area the first I've seen this year in this area.

              Next I had a drive up to Top Withens where I spotted about 20 Golden
              Plover a windswept Little Owl and a Kestrel catching prey but whatever
              it caught it was big which surprised me and then up to Fly Flatts for distant
              view where I seen 2 Oystercatchers and plenty of Canada's sheltering from
              the wild wind.
