Pinkies for Queensbury

                                    Pinkies snucking past the chimney pots.
                                  Early morn moving skies


                                 Last few Woodpigs in the clearing sky
                                    Vis Miggers dream sky

A good early morning with perfect conditions for movement finding a good supply of Meadow Pipits moving over >S as well as Woodpigeons in the same direction. This movement continued until 0900hrs when the sky cleared. This concurred with the same at Oxenhope after a phone call to HC.
Just as I thought it was all over mid morning HC rang saying he and DCB were watching a  Skein of c 200 Pinkies near the Victoria Hall Qby just behind the garage heading >W . I was dealing with a customer at the time but grabbed the camera and dashed out into the car park shouting Pinkies, to which he thought I was having some sort of fit.
It ended up with me and the customer dashing round the car park like headless chickens trying to find the geese, when suddenly I got a 5second glance of them and a quick pic as they passed low over the mill and to the built up side of me just showing between the chimney pots.
Thanks a lot for the call Howard, theres no way Id have picked those up without your tip off.
By midday all was quiet.

The PFG were good compensation for the ones that flew over your house last Sunday while you chose to languish in FF mist.
It is conceivable that seeing they headed W they formed part of the large flock I saw heading beyond Stoodley Pike.

Glad you got `em mate. The "High Streeters" of Queensbury must have thought the dambusters had arrived,planning an exercise mission over the "NK" pond !!!!!

Foggy, have been trying to comment on Nigels blog about the chap from Fairburn who mentioned my name, but having problems with URL`s and all that...next time you talk to NK could you ask if the chap was called Glen (if he got a name that is). Cheers mate ...Compo.
