Queensbury Today

A strong W>5-6 increasing and bringing rain by late afternoon quietened the skies over Queensbury today although the morning started off well then dropped off by 0900hrs.
The main movers today were Redwings all >S and high looking very much like fresh birds in. Also on the same flight path were Woodpigeons but only in small numbers with none of the large flocks that we like to see. Strangely a fresh wave of Meadow Pipits came over in 2 groups of 15 and 11 all >S, these being the first Mipits over for 2 weeks.
A great sighting by NK today with a Shag over Ogden, and a Plover sighting past Soil Hill, which was also briefly scoped by DJS from Hunter Hill, which could possibly have been another Grey coming in from the same direction as yesterdays birds though Nigel is tending to sway towards Goldie, maybe to be on the safe side. See reports on Queensburybirder and Calderbirds.
