Starling Hill

     Where have all the birds gone, very quiet today,
     It didn't help with the shooters and beaters out on
     Ovenden Moor & Pauls Clough, no sign of Cuckoo
     or Redstart.
     Soil Hill-: 2 Kestrel, 8 Meadow Pipit, 10 Goldfinch,
     8 Ducks in bottom pond, huggings of Starlings and
     23 Pied Wagtail nr dead sheep at Taylor Lane.
     Withens-: 1 Pheasant, 6 Linnet, 2 Common Gull,
      1 Little Owl, 2 BH Gull
      Fly Flatts-: 10+ Meadow Pipit, 10+ Wheatear,
      1 Kestrel with wounded wing, 2 Mallard.


  1. Saw all the Starlings on the wires as I passed for Ned Hill.
    Good count of Pied Wags on the move, watch for Whites amongst them.

  2. Good stuff Dave - like the Goldfinch in flight.
