First one flew in 21st March near Bolton Abbey, still no great numbers arriving. Sand martins are back and a few few house martins but small numbers too.

Also, what I think must have been a Muntjac deer running across 2nd on Keighley Golf Course this morning. No photo, but a good excuse for duffing my tee shot.

Hi midway,
If anyone is interested in seeing peregrine falcons, good time to get up to Malham now with two juveniles flying and occasionally landing close up on the top of the cove.
Cheers
Dave
