More Mips and Wagtails.

                                         Clear blue skies over Foxhill park.
                                     Magpies on the move
                       This fella waits for me getting to work

   Bar Headed Goose again at Yeadon Tarn thanks to local David.
This photo does not do Davids text photo justice as the only way I could get it off my historic mobile was to
take a photo of it but at least you get the picture. Thanks for that David.

A bright sunny day with some good cloud formations although the strong >W wind was still blowing.
Meadow Pipits once again came over >N but nothing on the scale of yesterdays move but 3 Alba Wagtails headed over >NE in one group.
Magpies were on the move with 4 seen very high >N and several were down around the village.
A quick drive down to Shelf Moor at last light in hopes of Red Kite proved fruitless.

One or two Swallows are now being reported down south so its only a matter of time .

A few mips going through Mixi this morning but not found many alba wags yet. Probably getting them at Q'bury higher up which is where I guess they are in this weather (?)

We didn't see the Bar Headed Goose which has been at Lister Park for a few months on Sunday, I wonder if it is the same one that has moved to Yeadon Tarn.
