Thanks to Tracy for the Nuthatch pictures taken over the weekend at St Ives, Bingley and to Ken  for the juv Dipper snapped at Ogden proving breeding there by the resident pair.

Yesterday evening there were hundreds of Swallows held up with the drizzle around Shelf Moor both over the fields and on the wires and this morning the move was on.
From first thing Swallows were piling over Queensbury in good numbers all >S and this continued till just after midday although by mid morning the numbers had decreased.
Meadow Pipits were also moving over >W but this had dried up by 0830hrs when the sky turned blue.

Good to hear a good move on Swallows Bri and nice pics of Dipper and Nuthatch - both special birds in our area.
