After the wettest April on record, the final day of the month dawned spectacularly gorgeous.
A quick trip into Hebden Bridge, where I saw a pair of dippers chasing each other along Hebden Water, then back home and on to the Moor.
Guess who's back?
I saw three wheatears in all. Two males and a female. The males didn't seem to be hitting it off. As ever, the birds flitted along the path in front of me, always keeping just a little too far away for some really close-up photos. They are such teases.
Dippers and wheatears: two of my favourite birds in the same morning. Come on, Spring, get your act together!
