Hay meadows, woodpeckers and Tunstall reservoir

We had a trip up to the hay meadows above St John's Chapel on Saturday 3rd. They were just coming into flower and will be spectacular in a few weeks. On the verges there were Mountain Pansy and Harebells. On the way home we saw three Missell Thrushes on the moor top.

Yesterday there were two great Spotted Woodpeckers on the garden feeder. Our regular must have told a friend!

We had a walk round Tunstall Reservoir yesterday and saw Sandpiper, Moorhen, Heron, Tree Creeper, Nuthatch, Willow Warbler, Great Tit, Mallard, Canada Geese, Pied Wagtail, Goldfinch, and Greylag Geese.
