The Howling Wind

Wet and windy all day here at Queensbury with a few bright periods mid day in amongst the heavy showers. The wind increased steadily throughout the afternoon till by tea time it was up to gale force continuing till the present time accompanied by horizontal rain.Several trees were damaged up Foxhill tonight and whilst driving over Mountain it was a case of avoid the wheelie bins and flying roof slates.
At least when it calms it may have blown some decent birds into the area.
Despite all this, Fieldfares were coming over well at lunchtime all >S even during the heavy showers. These may have been birds fresh in or just flocks skirting around the worst of the weather.
Bad news in the Willows medical centre grounds as today all the dense bushes and smaller trees that held the birds have been cut down leaving just about 3. mature trees.
Lets hope this wind blows itself out overnight.
