Woodpigs and Starlings.

A good start off this morning first light with Woodpigeons coming over in good numbers >S and >SE whilst large flocks of Starlings very high up headed >SE in migration mode. Both these movements had ended by 0900hrs.
A customer rang this afternoon saying he had seen a large flock of geese,100+, from Green Lane over lunch time >SW which coincides with DJSs grapevine report of  130 Pinkies over Pellon way also lunchtime.
Thats 2 large skeins over Queensbury in two  days, things are looking up.
Where were you at lunch time with the camera Tracy, thats your patch?
Midday saw a few Meadow Pipits over >S and 2 Alba Wags >W.
Whilst I was walking up Chapel Lane at tea time a female Sparrowhawk whistled through a group of Starlings and disappeared over the bungalows empty handed.

Unfortunately work got in the way Brian!

I saw a little owl this morning where the Grey partridge usually are. It looked right at me. I stopped to reverse and take a photo and it flew off!

I will be ready for it tomorrow.

Interesting with the 'pinkies' Bri - they came directly over our house while I was grass cutting!So I rang Nick and they went directly over his house as well justa sw he was coming out of the house. Perfect directioning. I think your customer must have seen the same flock (12.25 over Lee Mount).
