Don't normally go there in July but spent the morning walking from Blindbeck Bridge to the bridge in the woods and back. Weather not conducive to good birding - cold and windy.

We saw
a number of young wheatear
1 grey wagtail
1 juvenile redstart
1 spotted flycatcher
1 buzzard
1 blackbird
1 song thrush
heard a nuthatch
several wrens
woodpigeons and crows.
But in the woodland on the left on the way up we suddenly became aware of a huge movement of birds which included:
at least 50 mixed willow warblers and blue tits
2 + treecreepers
2 chaffinch
2+ great tits
2 juvenile robin

No hirundines at all, no swifts, no pied flycatchers, no chats, no dipper, no woodpeckers.

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
