Another red sunrise

Emley Moor at sunrise
Sunrise from Sourheads

Another bright, crisp clear day apart from a period of dark snow clouds mid p.m. which passed over without dropping their load on Queensbury. Temperatures were well down with icy puddles not thawing all day.
Surely DJSs Wheatear will have to move away in these conditions before the snow comes.
The sky today was dominated with gulls, mainly Black Headed and Common squabbling for food and terrorizing the Starlings trying to get them to drop the bread they were carrying.
A few LBBs moved over >W and 1 Herring gull headed >W over Foxhill at mid day.
21 Lapwings came over the garage late afternoon towards Jackson Hill just before I got a text from NK reporting c200 there which proves the winter flock is growing in numbers, ( see Queensburybirders for full Nigels report ).
