Harden Moor

Saturday 6th June a.m.
 A wonderful bright & sunny morning with a temperature of 8.5°C with just one catch a very strong blustery wind.This as we half expected kept the bulk of the birds down with movement often low & out of sight making for a difficult morning.One exception was a Garden Warbler which was up singing despite the wind.Other birds seen included Bullfinch,Song Thrush,Redpoll,Kestrel & Linnet.
The Cuckoo was heard again but not seen & a couple of fly overs firstly a Cormorant & later c20 Canadas, it was also good to see a pair of Reed Buntings & the Sand Martins were busy with their nests.The moor was lit up by masses of Cotton Grass which was great to see amongst the Heather.
