picked up on call flying over barrowclough lane at the back of beacon hill.
heard it call once and thought 'whats that?' given the number of power lines up here i thought it may be a sound in the wires, but it called again,heading south west.my first in calderdale and the first ive seen for a few years.
it should be noted this is a very early record for the autumn but large numbers of lapland buntings have been moving across england in the last few weeks.
i think one was seen over bradford earlier this week?
having looked here maybe this is calderdales first american passerine??
