As the Lammergeier has been fairly site faithful to a 5 square mile area of Crowden during the past couple of months or so, I decide to have another trip for it today.
A stunning morning but alas she came off her roost early, being spoofed by a Peregrine apparently. I just managed to arrive in time to see her soaring over the valley before heading off towards Longdendale ridge, eventually disappearing out of sight.
I walked back up a second time around mid-day but no further sign during an hours watching. At least 20+ Ring Ouzel, feeding on Rowan berries, several Coal Tits and calling Chiffchaff, several Kestrel and Common Buzzard, a Goshawk and hundreds of House Martins.
