More birds at Withens Clough

Wednesday 24th April - a grey & windy day - I went back to Withens Clough to see if the Goldeneye were still there.  No sign of them, but I did see a Wheatear, a Common Sandpiper and a Ringed Plover.

A good clough for birds, plants and insects. It's where our butterfly recorder, Brian Cain, reported a Dark Green Fritillary, very scarce in our area, due to its food plant being scarce (Marsh Violets.) We are having an afternoon trip up there on July 11th to see plants, especially the insectivorous Butterwort at its only local station. We are going up there with Calderdale's Conservation Officer, Hugh Firman.
Everybody try to have an afternoon off work!
