Harden Moor

Sunday 17th July a.m.
A cloudy start to the day with a strong blustery wind and a temperature of 13°C, which we have found are not the best conditions for Harden Moor as it proved to be.Despite the conditions we started well with an Adult and juvenile Green Woodpecker, the juvenile posing for a picture.The Sand Martins are still in the quarry as was a single Oystercatcher, other birds tended to keep out of the wind with the exceptions of plenty Meadow Pipits,a Kestrel & a couple of LBB Gulls flying over.
We had a walk round the moor just spotting one Willow Warbler and a Song Thrush, a Robin with a couple of juveniles in tow rounded the morning off.
