Yesterdays Wanderings

     Took a walk down Coach Rd and Sutcliffe Wood Rd yesterday
      in the sunshine but I think the midday heat had kept the birds
      hiding in the shade as not a lot to see but still an enjoyable walk
      its not easy to see anything while all the leaves are on the trees
      and Coach Rd was very dark down the bottom of the track, Blue
      Tits, Dunnocks and Chiffchaff seen and heard.
      Sutcliffe Wood had Kestrel high overhead and Grey Heron down
      by the stream, also drumming in the trees which I thought could be
      LSW but I couldn't locate it.

      Next I decided to drive up to Cold Edge Road to have a look in the
      fields around that area, the Nolstar produced Starlings and Swallows
      with a few flighty small birds that could of been Wheatear or Mipits.
      I then parked up by the mast where there were plenty of Lapwing with
      young and Pied Wagtails one was on the wall with a beak full of flies
      it would of been a cracking shot but a lorry came past and scared it off
      just as I was lined up but thats the way the cookie crumbles. I then went
      up to Fly Flatts in the hope of something special, 2 Oystercatchers were
      feeding, 3 Shelduck flew from the lake down toward the Dams and there
      was at least 6 Curlew about and lots of Meadow Pipits and Skylarks.

       My garden had Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Sparrowhawk in the tree,
       and Kestrel over the back field.
