Quiet on the Tops

    Took a trip up to Fly Flatts today for an hour but was
    surprisingly very quiet, stopped at Nolstar first and saw
    nothing on the ground and just a flock of Goldfinch overhead,
    then up to the radio masts where there were just Starlings.
    I was driving up to the lake when I saw some wings fluttering
    so stopped and had a look and among the ruins up there were
    6 Whinchat & Stonechat all looked like juveniles, 8 Canada's were on the
    water with others in the grass, 2 Curlews flew over and more
    could be heard later and also 2 Raven flew over Cronking and
    2 Little Owl were seen up Withens which cheered an old couple
    up when I showed them where they were and also cheered me
    up too, they're a cracking little bird.

    Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Blue Tits, Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove,
    Wren and unusually 2 House Sparrow were in the garden and
    last night the local Tawny Owl was on the hunt and doing
    plenty of screeching.
