    This year's first curlew heard 'bubbling'from home this morning. I was drawing the curtains to look at the lambs in the field opposite. I reckon it's spring

    on this morning's dawn patrol we saw a heron, heard numerous birds (the dawn chorus is very loud), couple of rabbits chasing each other in a field and sitting in a tree was an owl

    spoilt today greater spotted woodpecker whilst driving out to Edale, curlews, lapwings, golden plover.

    every day my feeder is swamped with long tail tits, blue tits, chaffinches, spuggies, robins.

    the fat balls I make are very popular...

    theres a colony of 2 banded cross bill just over the hill....must investigate as these are pretty rare I'm told.
