Soil Hill late p.m.

                                     Young Lapwing takes to the air

                                           Juv Meadow pipit waiting for the food

                                    Skylark collecting tea for its young

                                  Not many Robins on Soil Hill
                                      Plenty juv Starlings feeding

                                        Skies alive, juv Starlings

Soil Hill 1900-2000 hrs.  Bright and sunny with coo NE>4. Visibility, Ferrybridge.

A typical June evening up on the hill with everything busy on family duties.
A good year for breeding Meadow Pipit with birds everywhere collecting food for their young along with at least 5 Skylark doing the same.
A pair of Lapwing were up steering me away from a chick whilst another pair had 1 flying juv.
Starling juvs numbered up to 100 busy feeding in the field by the mast whilst a single Curlew flew overhead.
The tree line was poor with just 1 pr Dunnock near the bottom.
A Robin was singing near the mast which was unusual.
