Roper Lane, Old Guy Rd

           Plenty feeding activity going on at the cricket pitch
                                       Swallows, Starlings, Meadow Pipits





        Bradshaw pond from Roper Lane
          West from Roper Lane watchpoint
               SW from Roper Lane watchpoint

A quick check this morning before work of Roper Lane and Old Guy Rd.
Roper Lane watch point was quiet with just a few LBBs >W in the already hot blue skies whilst 3 Black Headeds were in the lower fields.  Bradshaw pond held several Mallards and 2 Canadas and a Heron flew from there towards Oats Royd.
Old Guy Rd cricket field was alive with feeders on the pitch with at least 18 Meadow Pipits, some still collecting food for their young, 24 Starling, some juvs and 8 Swallows on the grass, some juvs.
Surprisingly no Skylarks and no sign of returning Wheatears as yet.
As expected the Great Northern Diver has left Fly Flatts this p.m. probably due to no fish in there but well worth checking other local reservoirs this weekend in case it turns up again or it could be half way to Scotland by now. Well done again to NK for finding it otherwise it would have gone through undetected.
