Miscellany of Local Sightings

 This Bar-headed Goose is likely one of a pair that was at Redcar Tarn on 5th May but have now relocated to Keighley Reservoir.
 Brown Hares certainly seem to be on the increase locally; I am seeing more than I ever done before.
 Garden pic.
Grey Wagtail photographed at Slippery Ford a couple of weeks ago when a family party was at a regular breeding site although I have not seen them there since.
 This Weasel was first watched moving it's young to a new home but was tempted to come close enough to be photographed by making lots of squeaking noises. (I'm glad there was no one around to observe the bizarre things photographers do to get their shots.)
 The regular Little Owl at Slippery Ford.
Photographically not the best Short-eared Owl you will see on this site but couldn't resist posting this picture of one plunging in to the grass.
