Bad weather, good birds, good company. Soil Hill









 An early finish at work this a.m. left me 1 hour spare to visit Soil Hill.
On arrival the rain was pouring lashed by a cold SW>5-6, real atrocious conditions, but I wasnt alone, a lonely wet figure was walking towards me. I thought , who else would be mad enough to visit the hill in these conditions and on Christmas eve so that narrowed it down to either DJS or NK and it turned out to be NK.
After a lot of searching and watching several aerial displays from the 6 Snow Buntings we finally caught up to them feeding in the bumps and luckily the weather eased a bit to get the much wanted photos.
WISHING ALL READERS OF WEST YORKSHIRE BIRDING AND ALL BIRDERS AND REPORTERS OF SIGHTINGS A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A CRIPPLING GOOD 2012.
Brian.

Did you have to instruct those birds to back off so you could focus correctly? - great images!
