Shipley Glen
A Green Woodpecker spent the morning calling from around the Glen, a GSW was drumming and a pair of Oystercatchers flew over.
On the wet fields by Golcar Farm, 80 Golden PLovers had settled and 15 or so pairs of Lapwings were in situ.  A pair of Grey Partridge foraged by Glovershaw farm, Curlew were active and Snipe were displaying over their breeding territory.
