During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Fly Flatts, Causeway Foot Col, Old Guy Rd, Roper Lane.

   Murky skies >SW over the col towards Mixenden.
                  Haze across to the Withens >W from the col
 Brighter skies >NW from the col
             Ned Hill track watch point
   Common gulls on Old Guy Rd cricket pitch


                                   34 in an total


            1 of 6 Pied Wags, same location.

A horrible hot day today slowing down vis mig movement.
A stop off at Fly Flatts late pm after a run out with Lynda gave her chance to get some sun and me chance to stare into nothingness through the bins. Even Lynda asked the question, " Why are there no birds here ?". I,d no answer for that.  2 Canada geese, 4 BH gulls and 3 Mallard was the height of it  with empty skies.

Early evening and a 1 hour watch over the Causeway Foot col found a bit of movement with Swallows funneling through along with a few Mipits but otherwise nothing in the now cloudy,misty skies.

A check on Old Guy Rd on the way home produced 34 Common gulls and 6 Pied Wagtails on the cricket pitch along with 2 Wheatears in the distance.

Roper Lane watch point was un workable in the hazy skies to the west.
Just 3 Cormorants >NE, probably the Ogden birds heading to roost.
