Queensbury Today

A dull windy day S>4-5 but remaining dry.
Very little in the skies today making it feel like Vis mig has drawn to a close. In the old days of Oxenhope watching we used to end the watch on the first Sunday in November when it becomes impossible to tell movers from established birds such as flocks of Fieldfares seen moving from roosts to feeding grounds etc.
Watching now will be switched to local waters for winter wildfowl and passerine flocks such as Goldcrests for Firecrest and Chaffinches for Brambling , Redpoll for Mealys and so it goes on, theres always something to look for in birding, no forgetting the white winged gulls of course.
Having said all that all Ive had today is a few Fieldfares over early morn and the usual Common gulls in the park midday although less than 1 mile away Nigel was watching Grey Plover and Greenland Wheatear on Soil Hill, see Queensburybirder for his full report.
Ive also lost one birding watch now as on the walk home from work at 1715hrs its pitch black.
