RE: Hardcastle Crags

I wanted to get out for the day today for some rigorous walking exercise, so I chose this area as it was the least likely area to avoid any showers.

Dry all day, seen several interesting things along the way too, but, unfortunately I'd forgotten my notepad so I don't have a species count this time.

Highlights include;

Grey wagtail
Tawny owl - grey phase, partly concealed (thanks to the hint from a blackbird (like the saying "a little bird told me")
Pied flycatcher
Stock dove
Song thrush
Mistle thrush with young
Treecreeper paused for a rest for a good 10 minutes (lighting wasn't the best though for pictures)


Which bird is ideal for keeping cakes in? I asked. The answer: a Bun-tin. http://www.flickr.com/photos/135715507@N06
