I have been playing Ingress since Dec 12 2013 and this has got me out and about quite a bit. On several occasions I have tried to combine it with photography and on this occasion I was pleased I had my camera with me. As usual you can click on the image to see a larger version.
I stopped off at the bench/viewing area near the junction of Hillings Lane and Odda Lane near Hawksworth to submit a new portal; though I would not be surprised if it was submitted by others weeks ago and Niantic have yet to approve it.
Flying overhead was this Redkite. It was gliding around and several times effortlessly disappeared into the distance.
On the same Ingress trip I also went up to the Stone Cross on Ilkley Moor where Grouse were keeping watch.
Near the Stone Cross the estate people were burning the Heather for the new season.
From the Stone Cross the radar domes of Menwith Hill seemed to be bathed in sunlight.
This is the leading edge of a flock of Golden Plover, one of our seasonal visitors to the moors. I have not counted them yet but I would say that there were in the region of 350 in the flock.
On the way back from the Stone Cross, still on the same road there were a few Curlew and Lapwing in some of the fields. This is nothing compared to the numbers I saw on an Ingress trip to Beamsley Beacon but I have yet to upload those photos.
