Ewden Valley to grouse butts beyond Shooting Cabin: 08.30 -12.30

 A quiet morning bird-wise but with beautiful warm sunshine and great visibility, with heat haze later. Best from: 5 sighting of ring ouzel (2 males and a female beyond cabin on way up and 2 males from S-bend on way down) plus 6 common buzzards, 3 Raven, 10+ curlew, 3 lapwing, 1 kestrel, 2 Canada Geese and 2 Greylag in heather on moor top. Plenty of mipits and willow warblers, song thrush and mistle thrush singing in trees at Ewden Beck. No sign of Merlin, stonechat, cuckoo, golden plover or mountain hares.....
