Bombers Moon


Just been out with dogs over Foxhill under a clear starry sky and a bright bombers moon with several Redwing calls overhead.
As I got to the top of Fleet Lane a wader called as it went unseen over the top of me >NW and kept calling until out of earshot.
At a guess I would say Redshank but I,ll have to do a bit of disc listening to confirm it.

Good to get a flyover wader Bri - they always sound different at night and especially when you can't see them!

Just listened to flight recordings of other shanks and tonights bird was a Redshank.
Better watch the NK pond now as almost time for a Purple Sandpiper.

From the watchpoint at Hunter Hill Friday morning I scoped around 50+ Lapwings over towards Brighouse/Denholme Gate Road - I guess thats the local autumn/wintering flock ?(I didn't count them as 'movers')

That will have been the local winter flock that roost in the fields around Shelf Moor
