Ilkley Moor / Addingham High Moor 1130 - 1700hr. SW F 4-5. Heavily Overcast. Spots of rain towards the end of the afternoon.

Again very few birds seen due to unsuitable conditions. Just a few Red Grouse on Addingham High Moor. Several Wrens in the rocks below Addingham Crag. A Mistle Thrush was singing at Sheperd's Hill, also in the plantation here Coal Tits, a Robin and Goldcrests. A pair of Carrion Crows were feeding from a dead Rabbit and thats about it for the afternoon!! A very large area of Ilkley Moor at the south western end extensivly fire damaged - I diddnt realise it would be so big or bad.
