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.

Ringby Top. p.m.

With things on the move this morning Ringby Top seemed like a good choice for late p.m. to get in a 1 hour sky watch although when I got up there at 1500 hrs conditions were far from perfect with sunshine and blue skies but hazy visibility to the west beyond the wind farm and Ferrybridge to the each was barely visible. A cold E>4 was blowing so whether it was the cold wind or the sunny skies stopping movement I dont know but things were definitely quiet.
                                                              No more Pinkies on the move but plenty LBB gulls all heading >E, with Commons and Black Headeds now having left the area. Two Herring gulls went over >SW along with 2 very distant Buzzards. Otherwise it was down to the usual Corvids, Meadow Pipits and Skylarks with a single Linnet fly over.
A couple of reports this p.m. from Oxenhope with a possible Shag at Leeming reservoir MC, and a Red Kite over Leeshaw reservoir HC, thanks for those lads.
