Another tea time session, another storm. Taylor Lane

                                Kestrel on the Spotted Flycatcher post


                                          Mistle Thrush
                                                  In for the kill, a worm
                                                         Got it.

Tea time again and up to Taylor Lane to try get some decent Spotted Flycatcher pics when a grapevine text saying Hawkeye Daniel Branch had struck again with a Gropper on Soil Hill as well as Teal, he, also had the Spotted Fly earlier.
So the next plan was snap the Spotted Flycatcher then up to Soil Hill for the Gropper. wrong,
after 20 minutes wait no sign of the Flycatcher, just a Kestrel hanging around the area plus a single Mistle thrush on the wires.
Then when I was ready to move to Soil Hill the familiar rumble started and black rain clouds were moving through the Calder valley heading my way, fast!.
Back at the car and the heavens opened so it was abandon Soil Hill and home.
