A Raven was seen over Harwood Dale heading west, and a Peregrine was seen there too. Late this afternoon there were 6 Swallows and 3 Sand Martins feeding over the pool below North Stile House (south of Wrench Green), where there were also 8 Teal, a pair of Grey Wagtails, a pair of Pied Wagtails, and numerous Mallard ducklings. A Red Kite was present around Ings Farm for about an hour this afternoon.
