Queensbury Today

                                         Night sky from Jackson Hill with Swalesmoor and Ringby
                                  on the horizon, the ski slope is lit up to the left of the picture.

A busy morning with an unexpected move of Thrushes, Pinkies and Whoopers along with early morning Woodpigeons.
Pinkies and Whoopers unfortunately avoided me at work despite a phone call from HC at Oxenhope with word that 37 Whoopers were heading towards me. A dash into the car park with camera at the ready then another call from HC to say they had veered off at the last minute and turned down the Calder Valley.
Woodpigeons came over >S in half decent numbers early doors and several flocks of Fieldfare, the largest consisting of about 60 birds.
Hopefully the fog will keep away from Fly Flatts in the morning and Ill have to try get on Soil Hill pm to try for Nigels Snow Bunting.
