Heap Clough to Crowtrees....










0930hrs - 1130hrs. It was great to map out the old Heap Clough Mill, and take lots of photos one here shows the west boundary wall of the old mill which also backs up against the small brook and the other a distance shot, which shows the outline of the old mill). Birds are still going through OK. I had resident Grey Wagtail, a party of about 30 Redwing heading West and two parties of Starling 25 & 50 heading West and 6 Chaffinch and a Reed Bunting behind Crowtrees and calling... also here a photo of some Gorse well in flower and closeby to the ancient Holt Clough Quarry shown here .. (Click over photo to enlarge).. Also had a Red Admiral Butterfly at Heap Clough today, never had one so late in the year before......
