Shelf Moor Lapwings



Daughter and husband moving house to Shelf Moor so no time for birding today other than watching the fields each time I drove past.
A small flock of c40 Lapwings were very mobile moving from field to field throughout the day along with c30 Common gulls.
A Little Owl kept appearing on the roadside wires as did a female Kestrel.
Several flocks of Fieldfare were moving around the Hawthorn bushes with a smaller number of Redwing.
Most important job at the new house was the bird feeder up in the back garden so Id something to keep my eye on whilst working there.
Well done to DJS for finding another, or the same, Snow Bunting on Soil Hill, thats
typical on the first Sunday that I couldnt get up there.

I thought you had taken your bat home Bri seeing as someone has shifted your big rock - and after all that trouble you had getting it up there in the car!!!!

I'm not so sure about it being the same bird as on Saturday 20/11 I combed that area from 1405-1510 hrs without a squeak. In fact my potential passerine blank was spoiled by a single Chaffinch as I was leaving.
