Lapwing Skies


About two thirds of the Pepper Hill Lapwing flock


Shelf Moor late afternoon flying visit produced 15 Fieldfare and 11 Redwing in car boot field and an estimated 400 Lapwing flock finally settling in the helicopter field along with at least 6 Golden Plovers.
As I passed NKs house in the car at last light a small flock of about 15 passerines were flying from Park Lane trees and landing in the trees behind Nigels house, possibly Chaffinch but dont know, perhaps you saw them Nigel or are they regulars?

I didn't see them at all and the regulars here never amount to a figure of 15. I'll check tomorrow morning and last thing.
Had a Grey Wagtail this morning nr North Bridge in Halifax.

Grey Wagtails to me are like Herring gulls to you
