Westerlies getting things moving.

                                            Some of our garden Sparrows,
                                                  All House unfortunately



                                         Starling in breeding plumage

Another hot sunny day but with a fresh W>3 which seemed to get things moving a bit.
First off were 11 Fieldfare >N at 0715hrs along with a small number of Meadow Pipits.
At 0930 whilst out in the car park with a customer 6 Pink Footed Geese came straight overhead >E very low and nearly skimming the rooftops, they were here and gone within about 30 seconds. It looked as if they had been down somewhere because of the low altitude.
Nice to know that an Osprey had been over within the sight of Queensbury, see Calderbirds, even though it came over Huddersfield it would have been in scoping distance of Soil Hill, maybe next time.

I reckon 6 PFG at this date is an excellent record
