Local quarry - 21st March 2010

There is a local quarry near to where I live, where we have discovered Peregrine and Raven. I have been the sight over the last few weeks and I have now decided to share my sightings from here and other trips. My new blog will include birds, bees, mammals and plants. My most recent trip to the quarry on Sunday morning for about 2 hours. The quarry base is full of water and has a variety of waterfowl, on this visit we saw 3 little grebe, 2 grey wagtails, 4 moorhen, a coot and 2 mallard. On one side of the quarry it is surrounded a small wood and scrubland, in the woodland I saw 5 long-tailed tit, blue and great tit, chaffinch, woodpigeon, 2 song thrush and 2 magpie.
On the cliff face I saw about 75 jackdaws, 3 carrion crows, 2 ravens and 2 peregrines. On the way back to the car I saw 2 buzzards being chased by the two raven.
