Wagtails and Finches

Another bright clear day with the mid day sunshine feeling quite warm.
Wagtails and finches were the order of the day today with 8 Alba Wags over >W early a.m. which was a suprise as its getting late in the season for them.
Otherwise it was a mixture of Chaffinch, Goldfinch Greenfinch and Linnet though only in small dribs and drabs moving >SW.
No winter thrushes today and yet again no Pinkies over, if they don,t show soon my neck will be permanently stiff, people round here must wonder why I always walk with my head facing skyward.
A quick dash to Shelf Moor tonight found 2 flocks of very mobile Lapwing, c50 and c80 flying around over the fields and on my return journey just after dark Lapwing were dropping in to roost in the cross roads circus field.
