Had a wander up Soil Hill today where what I thought were Buzzards
could of been something else, 1 was deffo a Common Buzzard but the
other could of been a juv or something else, bumped into Graham Haigh
but it was very quiet but a Weasel cheered us up, it was that close it could
of been on my arm down at Taylor Lane, we were in search of the Cuckoo
which I caught up with an hour or so later, I got a call from Dave Sutcliffe
who was up at Roper Lane so popped up to see him as he'd scoped a Redstart
again which I was glad about as it's a lifer for me, was quiet for a while and
then a mad half hour as 4 Raven flew through, Sparrowhawk & Kestrel fight,
flock of Siskin and Linnet, lots of Swallows and Kestrels in action.
2 Sparrowhawk, 2 Buzzards ?, 8 Kestrel, 4 Raven, 1 Cuckoo,1 Redstart,
2 flocks of Linnet, 2 flocks of Siskin.
Need Brian Sumner and Dave Sutcliffe to help me out with ID of Buzzards
and most other birds to be honest.
