The bunting is out.....

Sighting from the last few days include a Barn owl flying over the road at Alnwick Moor on the 15th September.  At least two Redwings flew over Alnwick yesterday evening (16th September).

Today there were 2 Ravens flew towards the Cheviots calling loudly, 2 Kestrels, 5 Skylarks and parties of Meadow pipits on Weetwood Moor. There were also 42 Reed buntings (mostly in one flock).  The majority of these birds were feeding on the seeds of Purple-moor grass and Heath rush.  A Dor beetle was found on one of the grassy tracks along with several Red Admirals and a White-tailed bumblebee.
