No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.

Nesting Season.
With birds already starting nesting early this year any birds of a sensitive nature will be omitted from this blog if I suspect their being mentioned could effect their well being by disturbance in any way during the nesting season. Passage birds will be reported as normal.

Sourheads/ Catsteps .

                    Overgrown allotments on Sourheads

                                 Black Dyke Mill looking toward the top of the Cat Steps.

A cool day brighter p.m.and getting warmer in the sun. Clear blue skies.
A quick look along Sourheads which is a path along the top of the now disused allotments then down the fields by Queensbury school to the bottom of the Catsteps which are steps up into Brighouse Rd built to be used by the mill workers in years gone by.
Up to 4 Willow Warblers were in the area and a charm of 7 Goldfinch all in the old allotments. A Little Owl was down the fields and 2 Mistle Thrush flew over towards Shibden. Several Swallows were over the fields.
At 1625hrs this afternoon as I walked out of the garage to fetch a car in a Buzzard sp was high above the garage heading >NW towards raptor alley( Causeway Foot Col ) but I could only see it from behind  though the height of the bird made me think it was probably just a Common Buzzard.
