Soil Hill

Sun going down, from Soil Hill

p.m. visit.
A bit of a quiet do on the hilltop today and a thorough search of the area proved it to be void of Snow Buntings unless one was keeping its head down somewhere. I suppose the half -wit on the motorbike didnt help screaming up and down like a lunatic!
You could tell by the skies today that once again the autumn vis mig has come to a close apart from possibly a few European birds coming over when the weather comes cold so now its watch for dispersed winter birds turning up and keep an eye on and over the water for water fowl and white winged gulls, who knows whats around the corner, as DJS proved today, see Calderbirds.

3 Skylark
4 Grey Partridge
7 Meadow Pipit
1 Wren
9 LBB Gulls towards Mixenden Reservoir.

I should have come down to your garden instead of the hill.What a suprise you must have had. Im getting up to 40 House Sparrows at a time just now and now Im going to have to check them all for Tree.
Well done to Jen for picking up on them.
