Despite temperatures pushing thirty degrees, I headed out mid-afternoon for a walk on to Wet Moor, just to the west of Long Load. However, I did make a slight diversion on the way to stop off at a local site where I was lucky enough to hear a couple of singing Nightingales, and one even showed for about half a second!
Anyway, back to Wet Moor and a walk in blistering heat which failed to produce an awful lot, perhaps not that surprising given the temperature. that being said I did hear a calling Yellow Wagtail and a couple of Sedge Warblers showed well. Not anything else to write home about, but another couple of ticks for the year list (which I don't keep!).
