Harden Moor

Sunday 22nd May a.m.
After yesterdays rain we had a bright sunny start on Harden Moor with a temperature of 11°C, although later in the morning some darker clouds emerged but it stayed dry.The Oystercatcher was still about and the Cuckoo was heard several times, at one point it felt like it was in touching distance, but we didn't see it.Most of the trees and bushes have their leaves on now making it more difficult to find the birds but they are still up singing, we still struggle a bit with some of the bird songs but of course the Cuckoo is always a dead cert.We did spot Garden Warbler,Whitethroat and Willow Warbler as well as the usual Goldfinch and Sand Martins.
