Its worth a visit
New arrivals and a pleasant surprise in the valley.
The first Common Whitethroats appeared back on their iusual breeding area this morning in the Pildacre area below Chickenley Estate.
2 singing males where chasing each other in the tall trees by the sewage works border fence at o840 this morning..
What a pleasant surprise to flush a Barn Owl from a new nest box just a few hundred yards from Dewsbury Towm Centre.
Having flushed a Barn Owl from the same tree earlier in the week and not thinking too much of it it was great to see a Barn Owl actualy leaving a nest box so near to the town.If only we could persuade more people to put up nesting boxes in their own patch.
