Sunday 31st July a.m.
Another bright start to the day with a temperature of 13°C as we set off for a walk to the NW side of the village.House Martins are still feeding over the houses and garden near us and often over our garden these were the first on our list as we set off.A single Swift was also seen and good numbers of House Sparrows in one of their normal spots.As we walked on we saw a GSW and then another two appeared good to see them, Swallows were overhead in this area.We moved on seeing Willow Warbler,Blackcap,Greenfinch,Song Thrush and 16 Canadas flew over.Higher up near the moorland a couple of Linnets were in the distance and a high number of Woodpigeons were feeding in one field. More Willow Warblers were seen and a Kestrel was on a wall with some prey,possibly a mouse,or vole.Nearby was a juvenile Pied Wagtail and further along was a Pheasant and above a pond flew a Grey Heron.As we came back into the village there were now ten Swifts in the usual area.
