Bold = Remarkable observation (scarce or rare species or large number)
Comments: Regrettably missed first couple of hours as didn't realise it was clear on tops and it wasn't until Winter Hill had passed the 1000 Meadow pipit mark did we get the tip off. Still a good spring total of pipits and still moving in small groups when left, was glorious sunshine on tops and fog just staying in the valley bottoms until burning off
