On a Sunny Saturday morning in the Goyt

We saw;

A buzzard, a kestrel, numerous curlews, skylarks, wheatears, swifts, swallows, a lizard see photo below.

The youngest BW spotted a foxes den on the far hillside and we saw an adult fox returning to it.
All this after I had said to him that this year was disappointing for birds and wild life in the Goyt so don’t expect to see very much. As he said “Its a good job I came along dad or else you would not have seen anything!”

Mind you he went an spoilt it by telling me I was weird because I was always writing things down in notebooks.

  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful day, you’re so lucky to have such a beautiful area so close by! Now I must go and look up some of those birds, I’m not familiar with all of them.Birding has slowed down here. For awile I was seeing some neat new bird every weekend, but it’s down to just the chickadees and juncos again. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!fiwa

  2. It was a special day. The Moors seem full of curlews at the moment.Your walk in the woods looked exciting. We don’t get bears inthe Peak District!Hope you are having a good wekend to. BW
