Woodcock on the move

                                      Darkness over Paul Speak Institute, a landmark for birds.
                             Evening closing in over Foxhill.

A cold N>5 blowing but wall to wall clear blue skies this morning which is not the sort of sky preffered by moving birds. A few Mipits came over >S as well as small flocks of  Chaffinch and Goldfinch >SW.
The highlight of the morning was a Woodcock low over the garage >S from the direction of Station Rd which is a rare sighting for this area apart from a similar sighting on two previous years during autumn migration.
A good scan around Shelf Moor this tea time of the Pink Footed Geese flight paths proved fruitless with just half a dozen Lapwings in the area.
