Took a stroll up to the south end of Hay Dale via Wheston and aside from the usual subjects I saw the following
Great cormorant (flying over)
Approx 40 fieldfare
2 Brown Hare
Red dead nettle
Also heard a grasshopper warbler but could not see it but confident of ID after using BirdNET app.
Saw a flash of a probable little owl but disappeared behind a hill and could not confirm.
