Walked Billy Banks Wood and the Swale between Round Howe and Green Bridge yesterday. Loads of singing Chiffchaffs and drumming Great Spotted Woodpeckers. On the river the Kingfishers were back in the usual place about 200m downstream of the footbridge, there were many Dippers and a gorgeous pair of Goosanders. Hardly any people about so social distancing was easy. Stay safe everybody.

Bit of a late post but had a Red Kite over Catterick village on Tuesday. That’s a first for me in my patch.
The furthest north I’ve seen one.
