Behind Bank Crest

The path along the top of Baildon Bank gives great views over the lower parts of Baildon and is also a good place to see some birds. I went along there on Friday to check on long distance visibility, I have plans for a photo that needs many miles of clear visibility, and stayed to take some photos of some wildlife.

Probably the most consistently noisy birds along there were Wrens. Jackdaws were perhaps louder when they did make a noise, and would certainly be very noisy later in the day, but Wrens are amazingly loud for such a small bird.

Several butterflies were flitting around but this Small Copper was keeping still in its territory.

A pair of Blackcaps were flying into the Brambles to feed their young. The male has the black top to its head and the female brown.

Chiffchaffs could be heard calling from several of the trees and it looks as though some were still nest building. The dark legs and the bobbing tail tell me that this is a Chiffchaff and not a Willow Warbler.

Great Tits and Dunnocks were also around but this Blue Tit came close enough for me to get a photo of it.
