BREEDING SEASON EXCLUSIONS.

As of now through the duration of the breeding season all schedule one birds , red status birds and birds of a sensitive nature to this area will be omitted from the blog or reported as undisclosed site due to the widespread persecution of nesting birds by unscrupulous parties including game keepers and egg collectors.
Any of the above species that are obviously on passage through the area will be reported as normal.
This also applies to wildlife such as Roe Deer, Badger and Hares which are badly under threat from poaching and long dogging in the area at present and unfortunately this exclusion of wildlife will have to continue throughout the year.
Just another sign of the times.

Soil Hill pm visit

                   Plenty LBB gulls on their way to roost


A cloudier visit to Soil Hill this afternoon, 1430-1530 hrs which improved visibility without that blinding sun in your eyes.
Two searches of both east and west summits, the track and the mounds produced next to nothing, one of the quietest sessions yet. The only ground bird was a single Common Snipe with no sightings of the Jack Snipe for a couple of weeks now showing it must have moved on.
Stonechat, Mipits and Skylark were all noticeable by their absence and the Nyger seed remained untouched.
The only sky moving birds were several LBBs heading for the Oxenhope roost and a pair of Magpies around the old mistle.
Not the best of Sundays birding but every poor day means you,re one nearer a good day and after the run I ve had at Ogden recently I can,t complain.
