Future of the blog - Would you like to run it?

Due to a change of job, I will soon be moving away from the area. As a result I will be unable to visit the site on a regular basis and therefore unable to continue running the blog. If anyone would like the opportunity to take over from me and keep the blog going please send me an email.

10th June

The Reed Warbler was still present but had moved location yet again. This time it was singing from a dense area of woodland along the river. 2 Common Tern were also present.

6th June

What was presumably yesterdays Reed Warbler had relocated 1km west, and was singing from an area of equally unsuitable habitat. A single Common Tern flew east mid morning. The only other notable occurance was a large number of Large red Damsels along the river at the eastern end of the site.

5th June

A rather unusual record for the site this morning came in the form of a Reed Warbler. The bird, only the third site record, was sub singing in a small section of woodland. 2 Gadwall were the only other birds of note. Damsels included Common Blue and Blue tailed.

25th May

Appologies for the recent lack of reports, I have been away for several weeks.

On the 25th May, P Softley and S Cawthray had a Honey Buzzard come in low at 7.15 before gaining height and drifting off towards Ladywalk. This represents the first confirmed record for the site. S Cawthray also had a Red Kite over at 6.25 on the same day.
