Harden Moor

Saturday 12th July a.m.
 A bit of early cloud soon lifted leaving a bright sunny morning with the temperature quickly
rising from our starting 14°C.There were good numbers of Meadow Pipits,Goldfinch,Sand
Martins,Blue & Great Tits.Others seen were Blackcap,Whitethroat,Willow Warbler,Kestrel,
Song & Mistle Thrush.There were good numbers of Butterflies too some we found difficult to
ID as they rested with their wings up but we think they were Ringlets.There was also a couple
of the Cinnabar Red & Black Moth which the camera struggled to focus on.The highlight of
the morning came as we tried to line up a snap of a Goldfinch, a Stoat came bounding along the
path towards us it then went on its hind legs to look around before quickly disappearing in to
the long grass.
