Out of the area......

Yesterday, Anna and myself were in the North Pennines surveying an area of moorland close to Blanchland.  As is the norm at this time of year, there was not a lot to see on the moorland with the exception of good numbers of red grouse and a small number of wrens.  On the in-bye ground there was a flock of 80+ lapwing and a smaller number of golden plover.  There was also a steady passage of immature herring gulls moving in a south west direction towards Lancashire.

The highlight of the visit was a bat flying around a neighbouring property at about 11:30 am in the morning.  It was probably one of the pipistrelle species.
