Didnt they do well
This morning weather represented the birding in general very poor. At Tittersworth LRPs & Young, 25 Lesser Black Backed Gulls, Oystercatcher Common Sandpiper & 4 Curlew and a few skanky looking duck. Decided visit the local Peregrines only the female there looking impressive and so she should. The pair raised 4 young this year 1 more than 2010. The moors were not great either but low cloud and mist prevented a good watch. 2 Juvenile Stonechats were at the back of the Roaches. Birds of prey came in the form of Sparrow Hawk, Kestrel & Buzzard. Plenty of Common Warblers and Finches. Spotted Flycatchers and Grey Wags Nuthatch & GS Peckers at the Churnet.
