Out past the Polar Bear riding the Donkey, and then down Engine Lane into a sparkling, sunny afternoon on the mosses - plenty of Kestrels about, with one or two Sprawks, straightforward gull flocks, and ever-increasing numbers of Stock Doves.
As is often the way, sitting quietly in the car on the WIthins for half an hour or so produced results - a fine ringtail Hen Harrier cutting low over the fields, and out towards Lydiate, the Red Kite doing its thing again, although distant as ever.
Not even the unwanted attentions of a few Carrion Crows could drive it closer.
Seven Buzzards up here, with more out on Plex, including this unfortunate individual, which also got its share of corvid hassle.
Plex had a few good flocks of Skylarks in the stubble, 5 Golden Plover and a Grey Partridge, which is always good to see these days, plus the usual Corn Bunting, Lapwing, Fieldfare etc.
A ringtail Hen Harrier flapped north over the fields here just before 4pm, and although it looked very similar to the one earlier on the Withins, it could just have been a second bird.
The sun seemed in no hurry to sink down the sky, but once the Pinkies began plugging out to roost on the Ribble, I knew it was time to head home.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
