Its Birds and Cattle

Long horned cattle

Had a walk round the Thacka Beck nature reserve this morning, and it was a nice surprise to see the cattle had finally arrived, all three of them. To be honest I was expecting a few more than three, but at least its a start and shows CWT mean buisness. I had only just set foot on the reseve when 2 Raven proncked overhead, its good to hear them.

There wasn't a great deal on the pools apart from these Moorhens  getting annoyed with the Mallard and a about 12 or so  Black-headed Gulls mainly juveniles. Most of the pools had a few Mallard on but that was about it.    
Just as I was getting back to the car  Roy arrived, so I walked up the big hedge with him, we found Goldfinch, Chaffinch, and this Whitethroat.

There was also Blackcap but unfortunatly it was camera shy.  It was a very warm and sunny morning, making for a very pleasant hour or so.
