Queensbury Today

                                Local Carrion Crows checking out nest sites

A poor start to  the day with heavy drizzle and low cloud but this soon cleared to leave a bright afternoon with some sunshine. Just been dog walking tonight  and it is amazingly calm and mild with a full Bombers Moon.
Though the skies were clear at lunch time very little was moving other than the local small gulls and 2 Pied Wagtails going >W over Foxhill.
Carrion Crows are already checking out their annual nest site in the park before their rivals the Magpies get a chance to move in, this is an annual ritual between the two species.
On the way back to work a small flock of Starling type birds caught my eye but something looked odd about them, Waxwings flashed through my head but when they re appeared from behind a building they turned out to be 10 Redwings. Staring at these I walked straight into a low garden wall much to the amusement of the row of traffic waiting for the lights to change, they probably though I was the local druggy.
