Yesterday morning saw me in the Muggleswick area. The first bird I heard then saw was a Redstart but it was at a distance, it did briefly fly a bit closer but it landed against the light. Loads of Meadow Pipit were around and a Red Kite passed overhead followed by two Buzzards. The Pied Flycatcher was in its usual place and showed well. On the way home, I saw a Mistle Thrush gathering nesting material.
Early afternoon it was Burdon Moor. Again, loads of Meadow Pipit but unfortunately the Whinchat did not put in an appearance while I was there. A pair of Blackcap gave me the run around but I was only able to get a shot of the female. Three female and one male Wheatear were posing well as was the resident Kestrel.
