Its worth a visit
First foray in to the field since early August
What a weird experience going out in the field with two frozen feet not having any feeling where you tread and occasionaly falling over through lack of balance.
Thus was the feeling this morning on my walk in the field birding since early August.
My word was it quiet birdwise with only very small numbers of Winter Thrushes mainly Redwings feeding on a fairly average sized Hawthorn crop around lower Pildacre.
it was great coming across 3 very fluffy looking young Barn owls still huddled closely together in the prescence of a lone parent Hopefully Barn Owls will now become a regular sight hunting along the fields and borders of this part of the Calder Valley.
