Clear skies and strong south westerlies.

                                      Sunrise back ot mill
                               


                                                       

A strong SW>6 kept the skies clear and blue today with some long periods of sunshine.
Several LBB gulls were heading SW  into the wind whilst early morning Woodpigeons made their way south after leaving the roosts.
An interesting sight today was a single Curlew very high over Chapel Lane heading >SE and calling. It almost slipped by me as at first I dismissed it for a Starling mimicking but then caught sight of it.
A report at the garage today from CK of Med gulls in the area some check out those gull flocks on your patch.

Late November Curlew is a belter, well done.

Probably going to the Otley winter roosting site, it was heading in that direction.
