Dale birds today

Birding has been restricted this week by child care duties (as Louise as some horrible lurgy) and of course work doesn't help. There will be a bit of an opportunity in forth coming weeks to watch in Pannett Park as I have a group of children working there occasionally on a science project - using Birdtrack will probably be part of that as the friends of the park are keen for some recording.

After work I had time to cycle up the dale with Ellen on the new (2nd hand) tag-along bike. A familiar summer song over my head indicated the first Swallows of the year. On the way back there were 4 Mistle Thrush scrapping in a field, a few Curlew and 150 Woodpigeon as well. Bird of the day was a male Siskin on a Nyger feeder by the kitchen window.
