Broomhill Birder


what can I say, not a lot for Broomhill Flash really apart from a Peregrine Falcon that kept putting all the Golden Plover up which numbered around a thousand and the usual suspects. A phone call around 9.40 or so set us racing up to Wintersett Reservoir top lake where a “Bonxy” (Great Skua) was very obliging and the first for my Barnsley area records.
