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.

Shelf Moor

A day of rain and thaw but heavy freezing from late afternoon. The road around Shelf Moor was treacherous with black ice.
Reasonably quiet in the skies but several Fieldfare and Redwings in the fields. A good number of Mistle Thrush were in the holly bushes and 2 Pied Wagtail were by the old Bacon Factory.
Only 4 Lapwing seen in the distance and a small flock of 8 birds flew out of Hawthorns and quickly disappeared across the fields, these were more than likely Linnet but couldnt be certain with the brief glance I got of them.
If anyones interested and only wants small amounts of seed Wilkinsons in Halifax are selling off  1kg bags of Nyger seed at 1.79p a bag which is a lot cheaper than most pet shops. I got plenty bags in stock for the garden and Soil Hill.
The weather so far looks good for tomorrow so lets hope for some good reports.
