Club Trip over the Dales

Yesterday was the Durham Bird Club trip over the Dales, overall an enjoyable day out with my personal highlight being a Hen Harrier which appeared out of nowhere and disappeared just as quickly as it had arrived. At one site the Ring Ouzels put on a good show and a Merlin showed briefly, a Black Grouse was a welcome surprise. As is expected Wheatear and Meadow Pipits were plentiful; the same with Mistle Thrush

Sadly no Goshawks put on any show for me, first time I have visited the site and not seen them this year. However with this warm weather they might be settling right down. Sparrowhawks were of course plentiful and put on a show for those who had turned up. Overall a good day with great company.

Until next time, Foghorn out!
