Soil Hill

The rock on the top.
Dark cloud over DJS on Hunter Hill
A race north

Soil Hill 1500-1700hrs Cold N >3 inc. >5 Bright skies but hazy on far horizons though Ingleborough visible.
Not as productive as expected but still some Fieldfare and Redwing moving through. Redwing were going low >S and the Fieldfare were coming low over Thornton Moor before dropping below the skyline and heading >SW over the moor. Three Cormorant came through the Arc from the NW and headed >SE towards Yeadon.
Lapwings and Golden Plover were in the field behind the NK pond and at least 2 Goldeneye were diving on Mixenden Reservoir, possibly 4 birds in total but too distant to tell, possibly DJS ,who I spoke to by mobile on Hunter Hill, may know more.

Movers :-
72 Fieldfare.............................>SW
15 Redwing.............................>S
3 Cormorant...........................>SE

Other
83 Lapwing
5 Golden Plover
2 poss. 4 Goldeneye, Mixenden

I could only see 2 female types there Bri but from the watchpoint only about 2/3rds of the res'r visible because of the trees. I will do a full check of the res'r in the morning!

Could see 4 ducks close together in the nw corner in the shade of the trees but only got 2 diving. None were white males.
