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.

Soil Hill, late pm.

Just time for a quick check on Soil Hill late afternoon on a dull, overcast and damp visit.
December and still no sign of the target bird, Snow Bunt ,but a few now scarce birds on the hill returned for a visit with 2 Grey Partridge , 1 Pied Wagtail and a female Stonechat whilst 4 Linnet flew overhead dropping down in the tree line to roost.
Two Common Snipe flushed from the west summit whilst 5 Mistle Thrush were around the mast area.
                                          Nothing sky wise other than several gulls heading to the Oxenhope roost and a very distant Buzzard over Whetstone Gate.
