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.

Any sighting of birds of a sensitive nature throughout the breeding season will be omitted from the blog if I believe that in any way it could jeopardize the welfare or breeding of the species .
Sightings in this category will just be passed on to the Calderdale bird recorder.

Fly Flatts on a pleasant morning

                                       Off road parking at Fly Flatts
                                            1 of 4 Greylag moving through
                                 A steady trickle of Herring gulls

                                    Canadas continue to arrive



                                  The Nab on a better morning
                                                1 Greylag present.

A cool start to the morning at  1 degree on a light NW>4 turning  N>3 and the sun appearing leaving blue skies with 30 % cloud cover.
                                                     Canada geese continued to arrive along with a single Greylag whilst 4 Greylag flew over >E. A steady flow of Herring and Black Headed gull headed >NE , the Herrings all being sub adults.
                                 Corvids were the bird of the morning with Carrion Crows and Jackdaws mega high all moving >E, some of the Jackdaws barely visible so high up in the blue sky.
Two Raven flew over the moor at the north end also heading >E.
A quiet watch but a cracking morning to be up there.
