Harden Moor

Saturday 5th August a.m.
With good conditions and a temperature of 13°C I decided to have a wonder round Harden Moor,it is hard work though with increasing numbers of people walking their dogs and disturbing the birds as you find them.The main birds seen this morning were Willow Warblers all of which kept moving, Sand Martins were still around and good numbers of Goldfinch were on the Thistle seeds.I saw several Linnets and managed to get near enough to a Juvenile Blackcap for a couple of pictures of it in a Raspberry patch.Other common species such as Blackbird and Robin were seen as were a couple of Swallows.
 Back in Cullingworth it was good to see three Swifts which I expect will be off South any day now.
