An early spring day gave us fewer than normal visitors at Binn Green but including robin, blackbird, treecreeper, chaffinch, greenfinch, goldfinch, siskin, nuthatch, great tit, coal tit, blue tit, pheasant and kestrel.

Down at Ashway Gap there were good views of a peregrine once the haze had cleared and further long views of a kestrel hunting.
