Soil Hill, p.m.


                                Ingleborough
                     Late Swifts moving through

                Cormorants high and distant >NE

                                  Female Pied Wagtail



Soil Hill summit watch point 1500-1600hrs

A quick check on the Redstart bush first produced nothing so up to the top of the hill for some serious sky watching which produced well.
Swifts were moving >S through the Causeway Foot Col along with plenty Swallows whilst 4 Kestrels hunted in the area.
7 Cormorant were picked up in the distance over the wind turbines going >NE, these were possibly some of the Ogden birds.
LBB gulls headed for Oxenhope along with BHGs .
Several Meadow Pipits and Skylarks were on the hill along with 4 Linnets and 5 Pied Wagtails.
Good to bump into Bradshaw John by the Ned Hill track.

18 Swifts.................>S
