2 Swallows where in the Asda car park in Dewsbury yesterday hawking with around 9 Sand Martins at around 9:30.% Swallows where with 11 Sand Martins around the border fence of Dewsbury Sewage works at around 10:20.

There was 6 singing Chiff Chaffs around the kerries Foods factory area this morning including the bird starting with the first bars of a Willow Warblers song.2 Blackcaps where singing along the riverbank near Dewsbury Sewage Works as where 2 Blackcaps in song at the bottom of Dudfleet Lane Horbury Junction.

It is good to hear that an Osprey was frequenting Horbury Wyke on Saturday morning the 3rd of April.Such sightings are a tonic after such a dismal last 12 months.Peregrines have been taking food on to Dewsbury Town Hall regulary this week and it would be nice to see them take up residency somewhere in the town this Spring.
