Gulls on the move

                                        Sunset over Foxhill


Another sunny bright day but a little cooler and a cold W>4 blowing early evening.
Gulls were the order of the day with several Commons, Lessers and Herrings all heading >NW from midday on. Some of the Common gulls stopped off briefly at midday in Foxhill park before moving on again.
Birdguides reported another Osprey slipping through the net heading over Hebden Bridge on its journey north.
We can tell easter is getting near with possible snow forecast for the end of next week.

Common Gull.......................... 54 >NW
LBB Gull..................................11 >NW
Herring Gull..............................3>WNW

Ah The promise of pukka Queensbury weather at last, brings tears to me eyes it does.
We need the H20 to fill them ruts and scrapes on Soil Hill and pull some juicy waders down.

Nice one with the gulls Bri.
Nothing doing in that direction at Mixenden now - just a single B H Gull over >W this morning. Still 2 Coot and a female Goosander and 2 Redshank displaying!
