A family day out in Harwood today on a 10 mile hike through the forest. Plenty of birds with over a 100 chaffinches near the village with greenfinch, Siskin and Bullfinch too. 3 jays in the forest and lots of Chiffchaff, willow warbler and Meadow pipit. The only new bird being a Tree pipit at Tod knowe. No less than 6 Buzzards in the air together and 2 pairs of Stonechat. Also seen were Roe deer, Red squirrel and Lizard.
