Surprisingly busy up on the tops today , with plenty birds about, Little Owl , Reed Bunting , Mallards ,Meadow Pipit ,Rook , Herring Gull , Black headed Gull ,Stock Dove , Woddpigeon , Pheasant , Carrion Crow , Stonechat and a Wren. I was very surprised to see a Merlin flying about the snow covered moors and even more so when it stooped from a great height and dive bombed a ringtail Hen Harrier...!!
