Queensbury today

Good numbers of gulls over last light to roost >E

What looked like an ideal moving day today turned out to be a damp squid, or it did over Queensbury at least.
Not much on at the garage this a.m. so spent most of the morning in the car park cutting trees back etc with some sky gazing thrown in.
Woodpigeons were moving >S first light but soon fizzled out. I expected big Fieldfare numbers but this didnt materialize although conditions were good and Redwings were moving well even through the showers all >N and >NE.
A tight flock of Siskins powered through >SW and a single Kestrel went over very high and >S.
This evening good numbers of gulls came over >E on route to roost with the majority being LBBs. Strange how ,as always, the big gulls come over first followed by the Commons and Black Headed.
Get ready for mega reports from Fly Flatts in the morning ( sez he hopefully ).

Great Twite photos on Calderbirds DJS, I take it they,re digiscoped. well spotted on the Harrier, not an easy bird to pick up on when they come through low.
Sorry I can,t comment on Calderblog but can,t get on apart from anonymous and that doesnt show for a couple of days or so.

You've got a penchant for nailing Siskin this autumn Brian. This is the 3rd or 4th lot; I may have had a couple on call n that's all.
