More fog/lessbirds

House Sparrows at the feeders
Kestrel last light, Shelf Moor
Thursdays sunrise/ need one of these in the morning.

Yet another foggy grey day with thick swirling fog till mid morning then banks of mist and murky grey cloud.
A strong easterly wind this evening cleared the remainder of the mist and hopefully it will hold it off till the morning despite a foggy start forecast.
An alert from DCB this morning with the promise of big Redwing numbers heading our way was thwarted by the weather but hopefully the move will continue over the rest of the weekend. A call from NK reported Redwings dropping into trees near his house late afternoon.
Needless to say, nothing was seen over the garage this a.m. and Shelf Moor this tea time had very little on offer other than 4 Mistle Thrush and a few Black Headed gulls along with 1 Kestrel looking for its last meal of the day.
One sighting of interest today as we were driving to Halifax after lunch was 4 Jays at Crow Point flying parallel with the car >S which could have been movers although they were very low so possibly local birds?
Norman Todd reported 11 P F Geese >N over his allotment at New House Lane during the week.
Fingers crossed for morning.
BS
