Looking back at May 2015

With a hectic first day back at work and no birding time heres just some of the highlights from May 2015.

            A male Tufted took up residence at Ogden
           Ogden, good numbers of Long Tailed Tits
                       Mixenden white crow
  A Whitethroat for Ned Hill track
             Distant Fly Flatts Raven
 Pair of Gt Crested Grebe for Ogden
                  Later joined by a juv.
                                 Whinchat for Ogden
                          Return of the Swifts

  Sedge Warblers for Soil Hill


 These pics probably not to be repeated as most of
habitat now destroyed by bulldozers.

                                  Fly Flatts Dunlin
               Peregrine for Fly Flatts


  Shelduck high and distant leaving Ogden.

Great pictures as usual! Someone told me there is a pair of cuckoos at St Ives for the first time in a while, might have to head over on the weekend!

Wish i could get them all like that.
Cuckoos used to be regular in st ives but seemed to have moved across to harden Goit Stock for the last few years. NPs had one on harden moor over the weekend
