Rombalds Moor 27-02-2008 continued

Idol Rock, Green Crag Slack (c) 2008

Ilkley Moor 1130 - 1445hr W F4, 4/8 Cloud but mainly overcast over Ilkley.

Again very few birds seen. Wrens were singing from the bracken in the shelter of the Backstone Beck valley. Siskins were heard overflying, Coal Tits and several Chaffinches were in the plantation above the Cow and Calf Rocks and at least six Red Grouse were flushed from near the footpath at the edge of Burley Moor. Another Wren was in the Hangingstone Quarry basin. Once again the rocks were more interesting than the birds!!
