Took a drive out to the Selby area to meet with a
friend CT hoping to see Red Footed Falcon and
Yellow Wagtail of which Ive only ever seen a
juvenile so was excited to some adults and I
wasn't disappointed after an hours wait in the
pouring rain, was told the falcon hadn't been
seen since the day before, but we got a fleeting
glance of it at a distance has it returned and flew
over the field and then away again, 4 wagtails
popped up on top of the wheat stems and one on
the path, what an incredible looking bird they are
beautiful and the colour wow.
Next stop was Collingham hoping to see the
Rosy Starling that are visitors from Eastern Europe,
but no joy on this one although it was seen there on
the evening of the day we visited, but it wasn't a
complete waste as the Yellowhammers were busy
and Red Kite cycled above.
The Rosy Starling is the same bird I seen at Coley
graveyard last year but never got a pic.

Out & about over the weekend took a lad and his
son out around a local area, I hope they enjoyed it.
Long-Eared Owl, Barn Owl, Curlew, Snipe, Pheasant,
Kestrel and Merlin were seen and lots of the regular
birds. Saturday I got soaked after the rain caught me
without any wet protection on, nice walk on the moors
