Woodpigs Galore

Still a few Peacock butterflies about

Whirlybird over the garage.

Alterations in the back garden make good dust baths for
the House Sparrows.



A red ball sunrise but soon overcome with cloud and a cool S>4 later turning SE>5.

Woodpigeons piled over this morning from first light until 0915 when movement ceased. The birds were coming over in flocks of 50 to 100 plus estimating well over 1000 woodpigs over and being at work several will have been missed. The flight path was to the SE of the garage meaning that they would have come over the Bradford area just out of sight in the milky skies to the lads at Oxenhope. Hopefully MP will have been on watch at Caldene fields where he should have got a record count.
Two large flocks of Fieldfare came over early on heading >W and otherwise the skies were quiet for the rest of the day.
A count of 36 Common gulls were in Foxhill Park at midday.
