Despite the freezing conditions, there are some interesting birds in the Baildon Moor area. Frozen footpaths made it possible to walk in the Glovershaw/Sconce Lane area and two small flocks of Plovers were seen. The first was of 50 birds of Green Plovers, more popularly known as Lapwings, followed nearby with a flock of 40 Golden Plovers at Glovershaw and two Snipe in a wet area were flushed.
Other birds seen close to Sconce were 20 Fieldfare ground feeding, 2 Stock Dove and a Buzzard with a Stonechat and a Reed Bunting searching for food.
For me, the bonus sighting was of two Hares in a field just below Weecher Reservoir.
