Fly Flatts

                     Plenty juv Meadow Pipits ready for off
                  Grey Wagtails piling through
                         Just 5 Wheatear present

                           Buzzard off >SE






A good start to the morning in misty conditions getting things moving before the sun and blue skies appeared.
Plenty Mipits over along with 2 Tree Pipits then Grey and Alba Wagtails started coming in along the banking before filtering off >W.
Only 5 Wheatear showing, 1 being the young juv.
A good decision to drive on to the north end because as soon as I set off a Buzzard was over the moor heading >SE. I stopped dead and jumped out snapping away as it headed through the wind turbines, apologies to the cars that had to wait for me to move the car so they could get past but first things first.

Marvellous Buzzard shots thanks for the call, you had a rewarding morning for sure.

Excellent buzzard shots Brian. Brittany and I saw one above us near Shibden park this morning about 11. BY the time I pulled over it had disappeared.

Sounds like a different bird Tracy, mine was 0945 ish SE. Well spotted.

This would have gone straight over Soil Hill Nigel.

It was quite low above the houses on the left hand side as I was travelling from Halifax to Shelf.
