Freak weather hits Queensbury.

                                         Garden House Sparrows
                                                                  

Today must be one of the freakiest days weather wise that Queensbury has had for a long time.
A gale force to severe gale SW>8 gusting 9 to 10 with heavy rain blasted me down the road to work and as I opened up at 0800hrs the rain was so heavy you couldnt see across the car park, just a white wall of water.
Some clear skies kept trying to show then another set of storm clouds would come over blackening the sky like night time and the rain, hail or snow would pound down.
I can,t imagine how birds survive in these conditions, especially the Snow Bunts on Soil Hill but it must,nt bother them or they would move on.
The poor House Sparrows in the garden had to cling onto the feeders for life today.

A shocker of a day, Brian. Surprised there was anything to report.
