Reva Hill area - Redshank still on breeding ground agitated, 2 Snipe, 4 Linnet plus Peregrine flew through. 3 adult hares & leveret seen.
Two days earlier had a post breeding flock of 120 Lapwing at Weecher Reservoir so species doing well here.
An evening visit to the edge of Rombalds Moor produced a Kestrel carrying prey at Reva, another hunting next to Graincliffe Reservoir & a young Redstart in Cabin Hill Wood, also near Graincliffe. Finally, a juvenile Little Owl was seen in Walsh Lane, above Eldwick.
