Winter Thrushes on the move


Handy things,aerials


A safe place to eat

A bright clear day with rising temperatures until late p.m. when thick fog came down making me panic for tomorrow morning but by 1900hrs the night sky was clear and the ground freezing.
A real thrush movement day with flocks of Fieldfare and Redwing over the garage all >S. At one point it looked like an autumn vis mig morning but these birds were probably feeding parties on the move with the milder weather. Perhaps some of these thrushes were the ones Ian got at Shibden today? see Calderbirds for his report.
Other than that several LBBs were moving over >NW and like the thrushes this all took place early a.m.
A quick check by Sainsburys at Halifax this afternoon whilst shopping found nothing of the Waxwings there the other day, again a Calderbirds report.
Hopefully the fog will stay away for morning and the Med gull is waiting to greet me at Ogden.
