Deer Hill

I found myself at the other side of Huddersfield today and had a couple of hours to spare so I had a walk around Deer Hill in what turned out to be a warm but windy day. Birds seen were nothing out of the ordinary but there was a good number of Swallows about skimming the newly cut fields with Swifts taking the higher air currents. Higher up the lane Willow Warblers calling from the small wood and then the “chipping” sound of Common Snipe (year bird) sat boldly on the fence post, plenty of Meadow Pipits about with Linnets and a Kestrel hunting the fields Lapwings in good numbers not a day for the numbers game but a good couple of hours walk.
