Queensbury South

            Over Shibden to Ringby Top from Green Lane
          Track to Barehead Lane. Black Redstart country
                                   A mass of trees down Shibden Valley
       South down the valley. House of 1000 windows centre right
                                       or Scout Hall
                                        Below Green Lane
                                         Henacre wood

A dull dank day with a slight N>4 until late afternoon when the sun finally broke through.
An early evening trip round Qby south found typical June conditions with very few birds.
Shelf Moor trailer park held 6 returned Lapwing and 2 Pied Wagtail though the grass is very high now so hard to pick things out. A couple of Meadow Pipits were on the walls.
Corporal Lane and Hill produced 4 BHgulls and 2 Grey Partridge whilst Green Lane had 1 Green Woodpecker calling but deep in the greenery along with 7 LBB gulls >W.
Long  Lane was poor apart from over 100 Jackdaws in a new mown field , 15 Magpies  and crippling views down Shibden Valley.
BS.
