Causeway Foot Col strikes again

Strong N >6 winds and heavy showers dampened the vis mig today but the DJS team struck gold with a juv Gannet through the col above Ogden, see Calderbirds for details.
A great sighting there with the last Queensbury Gannets being 20 year since with 4 over Clayton 31/07/1990.
The last in Calderdale was a juv at Luddenden Foot and Walshaw Dean 28/09/2007 and 1 record before that in 1988, ( Hx Birdwatchers annual report NCD ).
Ogden has certainly been put on the birding map this year.

Only sign of movers today over Qby was a Peregrine >SW mid p.m. an a flock of 15 Goldfinch >SW a.m.

Hope this wind drops by the weekend
