Harden Moor

Sunday 19th June a.m.
Good to have a sunny start this morning although the clouds soon bubbled up, a decent temperature at 13°C.We soon got some good birds seeing a pair of Pied Wagtails carrying food,a Kestrel in the quarry, a Little Owl on top of a pole and a distant Oystercatcher with at least one chick.The Sand Martins were busy near their nest site and it was good to see Whitethroat,Garden Warbler and Willow Warbler.Also good to get a good view of a Green Woodpecker as it flew near us, also Redpolls and a couple of Whitethroat chicks on a branch still being fed by the adult.A good number of other common species were also seen and a Bullfinch for the first time for a while.
