Harden Moor

Friday 21st March p.m.
 A sunny morning but showers this afternoon some of them hail & feeling cold in the
wind ,the temperature being 8°C.A visit to Harden Moor where a female Kestrel was
hunting but a male had found a cosy spot out of the wind & rain showers. Not much about
on the moor Mistle Thrush,Goldfinch & Pied Wag being the highlights. Around the surrounding
farmland we spotted a couple of Little Owls one of them not happy with the presence of Magpies.Also here another Pied Wag & Meadow Pipits.

  1. I think you have an affinity with Little Owl. I have't seen one in a long while.
    You did well to get out today Danny - hail on Soil Hill.

  2. Found in a new spot today so will hopefully keep on seeing them here as well as Leeshaw.
