A bright cold Queensbury

Sun rising over,t mill
Early morning moon, Chapel Lane
Jetting off in afternoon skies

A bright but cold day with temperatures never rising above 5 deg. in the garage today.
The Foxhill invation of Magpies from yesterday had today moved on leaving the 2 resident birds in the area. I have never seen a flock of Magpies in the area before other than the roost at Oats Royd which is usually 25+.
The garage Wren was knocking about again today dodging the local cats and 5 Greenfinch were in the conifers.
Starlings are still present in big numbers and the Foxhill Park/ Rugby Field Common gull flock is up to 48 at first light.
I see DJS struck gold yet again today with a Black Redstart in the same area as the now very late Wheatear,( Calderbirds). Well done there Dave,it just shows what time and dedication can turn up on your local patch.
Should be interesting to see what turns up or disappears if we get the snow thats promised later this week. I know what it will bring for me, cold brown slop dripping down my neck from underneath cars, yuk.
