Today I just simply stood stared and stared at the stunning Hawthorns show at Toad Holes Beck.
But there was more joy as for the first time ever Canada geese have successfully bred at the site.
Also the Coots have been busy with at least two pairs raising chicks
Recent sightings include a Sedge Warbler in song at TH Beck on 11/5 and a Rose-ringed Parakeet has been feeding recently in gardens at both Low Moor & Oakenshaw.
There has also been a small influx of Swift moving through our area with 14 on the 14/5.
