                 Plenty juv Pied Wagtails still on the cricket pitch



            View NE from Harp Lane
                       View E from Harp Lane
                                 An overgrown Harp Lane.

Just the usual on the cricket pitch this a.m. but with the Wheatear absent.
A surprise was a brief sighting of 2 Grey Partridge dash into long grass in the next field as well as 3 Mistle Thrush on a distant wall and 4 high overhead >W. Around 30 Mipits headed >SW whilst about another 30 were blogging..
A dinnertime dash to the top of the Dailies saw Swallows piling through >NW into the wind and plenty passerine activity lower down the Dailies in the new Hawthorns but no time to check it out.
A dog walk this evening down Harp Lane found a higher than usual number of Robins whilst 2 Dunnock, 1 Wren and a Willow Warbler were in the bushes + a few more Swallows over >NW.

Jen just got me a booklet on 'The Queensbury Triangle' - very interesting with photo's of local viaducts and stations including Holmfield, Ovenden and Denholmeetc. Its by Alan Whitaker and Bob Cryer c1979. Just wondered if you have ever seen it ?

Have,nt seen it Dave, bet its interesting. When we were birding as lads down there the long viaduct was up, we used to walk along the edges of it, no fear at that age. The signal box was still up and a lot of the tracks in place. Some good photos on the internet for Queensbury triangle.
