Scout Dike, Silkstone and Hartcliff

A few hours in the Scout Dike/Folly Lane area before the crowds appeared. Typically hard work, with a steady passage of c.50 Meadow Pipits mainly moving west in ones and twos the most interesting. Also of note - single Raven west, 23 Redwings and three Tree Sparrows in a garden at the top end of Thurlstone. Hartcliff was even more challenging - just 35 Fieldfare and my first linnet here of the spring. At Silkstone SF a single White Wagtail with only four Pieds was the highlight. Not sure what the farmer's put on his field but it appears to have drove the wags away!
Roll on the next couple weeks.
