A morning in the LDV with my Dad and sister. Enjoyable birding, with six Barnacle Geese on the riverbank opposite Aughton church the pick, plus two Marsh Harriers, 25 Redshanks (good local winter count) at North Duffield, several Stonechats and an adult female Peregrine at Ellerton.
Six Barnacles - perhaps left over from the 85+ seen last weekend.
Male Stonechat, North Duffield. Plenty of these dudes around the valley currently after what was a great breeding season including a couple of pairs at least in the York area.
