Queensbury Today

A better day but very dull and drab still with a strong SW>5 but dry till late afternoon.

A flock of 9 Redwing came over mid afternoon >NE and several LBBs flew over heading >NW.
Otherwise things were quiet with 11 Commons and 6 BH gulls in the park midday and 2 Pied Wags on the top pitch.
NK Queensburybirder called to say he is having computer problems and after reporting 3 Snow Bunts on Soil Hill he managed to turn up the 4th on a second visit but 1 bird was keeping away from the other 3 favouring the northern end and around the heather to the NW. Hopefully Nigel will soon have things back to normal.

Thanks for the backup Brian, I did manage to include this info under the Ogden Post 'birdtrack table' (Read More >>)I reckon it's a trip to the Computer stores very soon if not earlier!

Well done for finding No 4.
I am hoping the males start to turn into summer plumage before they go - but that might be wishful thinking! They might wait to get back to the Arctic where it's warmer than the hill!!!!!

You,ve got a point there Dave, when they get back to the Arctic they,ll probably think they,ve gone South by mistake.

Hope the computer holds out Nigel, we can,t do without your input.
