Swalesmoor midday/ views of Shibden valley

                                                    Towards Shibden Head
                           Queensbury in the background
                                    A mass of greenery
                                           Looking down the valley
                                  Across to Emley Moor
                                       Across to Shibden Top
                                  Undisturbed land

A dinnertime dash on Swalesmoor to check for Wheatears on the bottom quarry proven fruitless but gave me some amazing views of Shibden valley at its best.
3 Herring gulls went over >W along with several Swallows but no Swifts today.
Around a dozen Linnet were mobile, a scarce bird for me this year, whilst 4 Pied Wagtails were along the roadside.
Several Swallows were going in and out of an out building at the house near the Swalesmoor, Queensbury Road junction.

Bit boggy down there too Tracy and a steep climb back up.
