Queensbury Today

                                   We breed mean looking crows in Queensbury.


                                               This years offspring.

A better moving day today with Meadow Pipits over in force >S till just after midday then taken over with Swallows and finches.
Foxhill park at lunch time was down to a trickle of Mipits but several Chaffinch, Greenfinch and Goldfinch were all heading >SW.
Swallows continued moving >S until last light.
Just as darkness closed in, 1915hrs, 4 Pipistrelle bats were hunting over the trees in Foxhill Park along with another single bat more than twice the size, about the size of a Swallow but much plumper. Dont do Bats so that could be one for Bruces team.
Another customers report of Pinkies moving , this time down the east coast past Hornsea heading for The Wash in big numbers. Looks like a lot are following the coastlines down this year and missing us out.
Last night I predicted winter thrushes being seen any day now and the first Redwings were spotted today over Northowram, AC.

That Crow will remind some birders of their mother in law.
