During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Havoc in the snow.

                       Chapel Lane this morning

                                       The rugby field
                                 Chapel Lane this evening

                                   Christmas card material

Overnight snow left a covering this morning but the sky was bright and clear until early afternoon when the dark clouds appeared. By 1500hrs the snow was piling down with flakes the size of half crowns and by tea time the roads were at a standstill with no gritters in sight , once again.
Even the roads low down were for some reason grid locked with only a dusting of snow, it took the daughter from 1630 to 1930hrs to get from Bradford, through Shelf and across Halifax into Sowerby Bridge with every route being blocked, I wouldnt want to be her boyfriend when she finally arrived home , I,d steam from her coming through my mobile.
Even now cars are grid locked at Queensbury over the mountain, makes me realize how lucky I am walking to work.
I dont know how we,ll go on if we get the 4 weeks of Siberian weather that we,re promised starting next week!
After all that I,ve nothing birdwise to report other than the usual residents and an unusually high number of Starlings around the area.

Starlings are like gold dust down this end - send a few down.
You remember half-crowns as well then!!
