This morning .
A good tramp, up and down the trail, with the dog; in glorious weather.
As I turned down Ladybridge Lane to the trail, a Sparrowhawk cruised past low;
over the bungalows and across the golf course.
For the first time this year I saw the ''Bank Wood'' Dippers. Twice carrying vegetation. This is a mile from
the usual Dippers site and I have now located the base here.
Nothing much at the standing water, but 2 Buzzards were cruising together above Ravens Wood.
Mallards....12
Jackdaw...15
Carrion Crow...3
Grey Heron... 2 sightings
The third Dipper of the day was seen near the usual bridge, and eventually preening itself on Bessy Brook.
As I turned for home up Junction Road West, a Buzzard (possibly a third) came north off Rumworth Lodge,
and flew along near me for a time, as it ambled towards Ravens Wood.
Some real classy bikes seen on the trail today; An Ellis Briggs and a Raleigh Randonneur

Looked upstream for the usual Dippers but immediately a Kingfisher came off the right bank and flew
upstream, under the road bridge. My first Kingfisher sighting on the brook since winter 2010.smile

A good tramp late this afternoon with the dog.

At the standing water (''Loch Beaumont'') were:
8 Teal
4 Mallards
4 Pied Wagtails
A Grey Heron flew up, and a pair of Goosander went down, the Valley.
2 Wrens seen, one singing atop a bush
A Long-tailed Tit and Great Tit.
The Dippers did not oblige but as I turned for home at Lostock, 2 Grey Wagtail were feeding
in the Rumworth Lodge outflow channel, just before the tunnel.

Late post with info thanks to a neighbour, Brian Greenhalgh.
While playing golf, 2 weeks ago, on the 5th tee at Deane, 2 Common Snipe rose from the reed bed very close to the tee.
This reed bed is where 2 streams (one the Dean Clough stream) meet Middlebrook and is just upstream from the Heaton Fold Bridge.
Footnote: according to a new Council sign by the bridge: a new local nature reserve... ''Haslam Park Local Nature Reserve'' exists.
The map on the sign shows it to include Haslam Park with a stretch of Middlebrook strangely named ''River Middlebrook'.'
The extensive grounds of Deane Parish Church, Deane Clough and at least part of this reed bed are also included.
