Starling invasion

                Sun creeping through the clouds on the way to work

                                               Influx of Starlings in the village



After yesterdays report of Starlings on the move the village had a mass influx of them today with several
flocks around 100 strong moving around the area. These will be birds from further north moving down the country and by the end of the month most will be established and stay throughout the winter.
A cloudy sunrise this morning with the sky looking ideal for movers but this was short lived and low cloud soon took over brightening for a period in the afternoon only to fall away again by early evening producing fog and rain.
For the third day running Pink Footed Geese were over our area with a large skein over Ogden late morning heading >W, ( number to be established on Queensburybirder blog ), these were seen and photographed by Warbler Woman Denise S.

Unfortunately not! There were plenty of birds flying though.
