18th March

 2 different Buzzards

1st Shortie of the year.

Out with SC today in another part of Calderdale. Todays raptors started with 2 Sparrowhawks followed by 3 Buzzards another couple of Sprawkers and 2 Kestrels, SC had already had a Red Kite earlier in the day. A distant Raven was picked up over the moors and the valley was buzzing with Green Woodpeckers at least 4 calling all day, Also Nuthatch, GSWPecker, 1 Siskin, 40 Fieldfare, several Curlew and a Little Owl. On the way home picked up the first Short-eared Owl of the spring sat on a fence post.
