Broomhill Birder

Hi All,

a very cold and bitter weekend with snow in some places and expected in most parts by Monday but it didn’t stop the waders from coming in with quite a few different species passing through.  Also the Stonechat was still present just over the river towards the canyon at Darfield.  Anyway here are the weekends sightings for the Broomhill area starting with Saturdays and Sundays sightings are for Broomhill and Wombwell Ings.
