During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Causeway Foot Col strikes again

Strong N >6 winds and heavy showers dampened the vis mig today but the DJS team struck gold with a juv Gannet through the col above Ogden, see Calderbirds for details.
A great sighting there with the last Queensbury Gannets being 20 year since with 4 over Clayton 31/07/1990.
The last in Calderdale was a juv at Luddenden Foot and Walshaw Dean 28/09/2007 and 1 record before that in 1988, ( Hx Birdwatchers annual report NCD ).
Ogden has certainly been put on the birding map this year.

Only sign of movers today over Qby was a Peregrine >SW mid p.m. an a flock of 15 Goldfinch >SW a.m.

Hope this wind drops by the weekend
