Sun, snow and ice

A bright clear sunny morning with the overnight gales dropped leaving a light SW>4. By 1100hrs grey clouds were taking over the blue and with them came some very heavy snow showers on and off all afternoon clearing by dark leaving clear skies and heavy freezing.
Big gulls were on the move mid morning with a constant flow of LBBs all >S and at least 4 Herring gulls heading in their usual direction of >W.
Hopefully the gales forecast for Friday will waft things about for the weekend for us so watch those gull flocks and local waters, we could do with a mega to see the year out.
A nice find for AC today with a Woodcock on Soil Hill along with the 9 Snow Buntings, see Northowram blog for his report.

One Day, mebbe, if Mars is in the ascendency with Venus, I'll just cop for a Queensbury Herring Gull.
