Harden Moor and St Ives

Saturday 19th June a.m.

  A bright sunny start to the morning with a temperature of 11°C on Harden Moor where it was good to hear and see a Garden Warbler singing.  Whitethroats were busy collecting food for their young as were Willow Warblers.  Others seen were Goldfinch, Skylark, Dunnock and Song Thrush.

 A short drive to the other side of the Moor and the Coppice Pond at St Ives were conditions were as described earlier  with a dozen Tufteds on the water.  A pair of Mute Swans had seven cygnets, others here were Moorhen and Coal Tit.
