Harden Moor

Saturday 23rd May a.m.
A dull overcast start to the day with a temperature of 9°C as we walked across Harden Moor,this made for some difficult birding.The trees are now back in full leaf which means the birds have a lot more cover, a Cuckoo made full use of this as we heard it through out our visit but didn't catch sight of it once.Sand Martins were flying above with a couple of Swallows passing through & a Kestrel also flew over.The highlight of the morning was a good view of a Little Owl, other notables were Redpoll,Linnet & Willow Warbler.
