Osprey! By some two weeks the earliest I have ever seen in the UK. Flew over my house then onwards directly over Richmond Castle and Richmond. Clearly on the move as it just kept straight on.

2 Ruff on the floodwater outside Langton this afternoon. Also a ringed (or little ringed - too far to tell) plover. Good turnover of birds here - I had gadwall and shoveler on Sunday replacing shelduck, wigeon and teal on Saturday.

Peregrine falcon 20 feet from me in a tree on Easby Lane, Richmond this afternoon. However, when it flew I could see it was wearing jesses. There was no sign of a falconer so I presume it was an escaped bird. It never flew far from me so either it was used to humans or it regarded me as a tasty prey item!

Driving between Reeth and Tan Hill on Saturday, saw a woodcock, many lapwings & curlews, grouse pairs and a short-eared owl hunting near the Tan Hill Inn. Also a merlin on the road down towards Keld.

To add to the Whooper fest: two lots over Crakehall on Sat 20th both North / NNE. First at about 7.00, too distant to count but 50 -100 and second lot directly overhead at about 9.30 - 59 counted.
