Hordron Road and LDV 23/4/17.
Dry and sunny and great to be out and about. The only complaint was the heat haze now and again. Good birding with a Red Kite for a good 5 minutes up harden clough before drifting off west. Merlin 1, Buzzard 6+, Kestrel 1 and a Peregrine reported by another birder. Also 3 Ravens, 6 Ring Ouzels, 4 Wheatears, 20 Siskin with probably a lot more in the conifers. 2 Oystercatchers in the barmings area and a report of a Stonechat just west of upper hordron barn.
