Queensbury, just the local stuff

                                                 Common gulls in the park


                                          The garden House Sparrows

                                               A convenient perch

A mixed bunch of weather today with a cold W>5 bringing showers of rain, sleet and snow with some bright sunny intervals in between.
I thought the Herring gull movement was going to continue today with 5 over first light, (3) and (2) but no more were seen throughout the day.
Foxhill park was quiet at lunch time apart from the usual low numbers of Common and BH gulls of which Commons are on a record low count  so far with a maximum of 23 which has now dropped to 12 instead of the usual 70 +  counted at this time of year.
Up to 28 House Sparrows are using the garden feeders at the moment, 12 of which roost in the ivy.
