During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Curlews moving back into the area.

As predicted, a cracking Monday morning with clear blue skies and wall to wall sunshine with just a couple of light showers p.m.
All quiet over Queensbury and even though I kept an eye on the sky no Pinkies were on the move and no grapevine messages reporting them.
One interesting text this morning came from H.C. reporting Curlews moving >W over Oxenhope probably returning to their moorland breeding areas.
A single Sparrowhawk flew fast and low over Foxhill park midday and 15 Common along with 9 Black Headed gulls were on the football pitches.

Lets hope the Curlew bring some settled sunny weather for a change!!

(I could not decipher your last text today Bri.
I'm still using a gas-powered nokia mobile.
I'll hazard a guess at a smiley face with sun glasses!!!).
