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.

Queensbury,Shelf Moor, Plenty Lapwings, no Goldies.

                                             Field full of Lapwings



                                       No sign of Golden Plover today

                                              Just 1 Owl present at midday.

A damp grey day with light rain showers and a cold WSW>5.
A few small flocks of Woodpigeons came over this morning >S along with 2 decent flocks of Fieldfares also >S, the latter being re locating birds.
A flying visit to Tracys field at Shelf Moor found around 200 Lapwings , c50 Starling, 5 BH gulls but no sign of the Golden Plovers although I didnt have time to scan the surrounding fields. 1 Snipe showed briefly in the top corner of the field but soon disappeared back into a trench.
