Queensbury .Calm and sunny, for now.

                                    Clear views east to Otley and Menwith Hill
                                    The strange yellow thing in the sky.

After a night of gales reaching 78mph, probably 178mph on Soil Hill, the morning started wet and windy followed by a heavy snow shower but by mid morning the wind had calmed and the sky was blue.
By some miracle the Snow Buntings had survived on Soil Hill and all 9 were showing well today, NK,DJS.
Very little activity was apparent in the sky although 6 Mallard flew >S over the garage possibly from the Station Rd pond and 2 Pied Wagtails briefly visited the car park.
With clear skies today the lengthening daylight showed well with darkness falling about 1620hrs.
Many thanks to David James and Stuart Walker for putting my blog on the Queensbury Village website ,kindly put forward by Cllr Paul Cromie.
