A calling Nuthatch as I got out of the car was a good omen as I think this is my first Nuthatch here, plenty of Curlew , Skylark , Red Grouse , Golden Plover and Meadow Pipits on the Moor around the wind farm. Kestrel and Reed Bunting on the Golf course and a Tree Pipit calling here which again I have not seen here before...A very early Swift on Thursday Blackcap , Willow Warbler  , Chiff chaff ,Swallows  , 8 Linnets , 2 Great spotted Woodpecker and a Green Woody at Northowram.
