A grey Queensbury day

Looking east from Foxhill into the sunshine towards Otley


A dark dreary day at Queensbury today staying dark till after 0800hrs then remaining dull and drizzly with fog after dark.
The village was alive with feeding birds at mid day with massive flocks of Starlings around plus Common and Black Headed gulls. House Sparrows were tucking in to a table full of pasta and rice with constant glances over their shoulder watching for the local Sparrowhawk with keeps swooping through.
A customer reported of a small wader type bird seen on a couple of occasions when walking his dog on the track from Ned Hill below Soil Hill. He says its usually up the boggy track leading up to the hill in the reeds and describes it as wader type with long bill and brown speckled body and it only flys a few yards then drops down again. Could be Common Snipe but when flushed they,re usually up and away, could be Jack Snipe with that flight pattern, worth a check out anyway.
