Queensbury Today

A foggy start then rain and drizzle throughout the day carried along with a WSW>4.
Nothing to be seen early on skyward but as the cloud lifted slightly it became apparent that Starlings were on the move with several small squadrons of around 12- 20 birds all heading >NE in migration mode.
Listening to reports from Calderbirds wildfowl were moving with Gadwall and Shelduck around the area whilst the Crossbill flock at Ogden is up to 17, ( DJS). I think these birds are doing the opposite to what I first thought and are feeding at Back Lane and roosting near the Giants Tooth as this morning the birds were active at Back Lane but I was there till near last light yesterday waiting for them to come into roost which didnt happen.
Well done to NK for turning up a Snow Bunting on Soil Hill when we thought they had gone, possibly they,re all still up there.
