A quieter day

Some early morning photos on the way to work yesterday

Unfortunately today was nothing like.


A miserable start to the day with a strong SW>5 and heavy drizzle which soon cleared leaving a grey windy day .
Woodpigeons were overhead first thing all >S but in small groups of 10 to 20 stopping moving by 0830hrs.
A few squadrons of fast moving Starlings in mover mode darted over >S and by late morning a scattering of Fieldfares were heading >W and >NW with one or two Redwing in amongst.
A nice little charm of 7 Goldfinch were feeding next to the garage on seed tops but were too mobile for a photo. This was a first for the garage.
Hopefully the Whoopers will stay at Ogden till Sunday but its highly unlikely. See Calderbirds.

Not many Starlings moving over Hunter Hill this morning (1 and 50)but I could see the Lapwing flock flying over Queensbury/Shelf area, probably c150 or so, probably dusturbed by a predator as they soon went down again.

The Lapwing flock is building up nicely now
