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 south and Northowram

                              Few gulls in Northowram horse field
                                 Shelf Moor Lapwing field holding Meadow Pipits
                  Little Owl peering through the lats

                                 Black Dyke Mill from Green Lane
                                         Mistle Thrushes

                                                    One from yesterday

A wild and wet day from start to finish with little in the skies over the village.
Yesterdays Whooper Swans moved this morning around 1000hrs and were last seen heading >N over Ogden.
A flying visit to Northowram at lunch time hoping for a photo of ACs Pinkie in the horse field yesterday found nothing but a few small gulls and several corvids.
The Shelf Moor Lapwing field held around 30 Meadow Pipits and a pair of Mallard whilst several Mistle Thrushes were on the wires around Corporal Hill and the Little Owl was well sheltered behind the fencing.

Lynda still making good progress but finds it very painful sipping water. They tried her with some yoghurt today but couldnt manage to swallow it. A feeding machine has been ordered to be delivered home so things could be moving after the weekend.
