Lovely birds; on and under 4 sisters.

This was the Friday of the heat wave before the snow that is forecast for the weekend. It was a glorious walk along "the sisters" to give you a taste of the walk that I shall be leading on Sunday 18th May. See for details. Walking doesn't get any better than this for the diversity of habitats and wildlife within a day's stride!

Stonechats (above and below), meadow pippets, rock pippets, kestrels, skylarks, jackdaws, rooks, green woodpeckers, grasshopper warblers(?), wrens, chaffinch, gulls etc. provided a symphony of bird song during this walk. There is a nesting bird on the cliff face, see below. I have not named it here though, in case it is googled by someone with undesirable intentions.

You need to expand this to read the text on the warning sign.

For the security of this stunning bird below, I will not name it here.
These cliffs are awesome from the top. And just overwhelmingly beautiful and dangerous from below.
