Two hour field tour, Shelf Moor


                                 Goldies and Lapwings, very distant shots


                                                  1 of several Long Tailed Tits
                                        The Burned Road Pied Blackbird, possible different bird.

A tour round this p.m. of the fields around Shelf Moor brought a good variety of birds though the Lapwings and Golden Plovers were keeping to fields out of photographic range.
