A very pleasant day out at Bolton Abbey. Pied and Spotted Flycatchers and Redstart. Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers but no Wood Warblers. Lots of Goosanders and Mandarin Ducks on the river together with Dippers and even a Kingfisher which landed high in the trees. A Tree Pipit also but the highlight of the day has to be the family of Tawny Owls perched in the trees. An adult with three young together and a further juvenille in the tree opposite.
MARSH FRITILLARIES at BRENEY COMMON.
