Old Guy Road midday, Corporal Hill watchpoint , evening.

                                      Old Guy Road cricket pitch
                                       Plenty Linnets around

A check around Old Guy Road at lunch time found the cricket pitch empty apart from 2 Pied Wagtails and 4 Meadow Pipits but the green was littered with white gull feathers showing several gulls had been preening there.
A single Wheatear was flitting around a distant wall whilst several Linnets were grouping on the wires. Several Swallows were moving through >S.

Shelf Moor this evening produced the usual Canadas over on the way to roost in the pond field but just 4 this evening.
A short watch from the top of Corporal Hill found several blogging Swallows over the new mown fields and 8 Lapwing in a field full of corvids.
Four Pied Wagtails were along the roadside along with 3 Greenfinch and again more Linnets were on the wires.

A reliable customer report today of 2 ringtail Hen Harriers moving through >S last Thursday low over a local moor.
No time to check Ogden tonight as had to pick Ollie up from the vets after having some teeth removed. He came away less 4 teeth and I came away less £300, very painful for us both.
