Male and Female Stonechat at Lead Mines Clough this afternoon. @chorleynats4
Came across these on a local walk, great to see the Lapwing with young. The mother spotted us so a few quick snaps before leaving them be.
So yesterday I got a bit excited at seeing a yellowhammer in the garden, today it's back and I got a chance to get a short video and some photos of it!
Spotted flycatcher has been seen at Lead Mines Clough -they have declined by 89% nationally since 1967.
