The Shortest Day, Queensbury.

                                The weather vane on Foxhill School
                          The Pineberry, Websters Brewery black cat.

A decent day once the fog and damp had cleared mid morning bringing the sky alive with birds after a 2 day grounding. Large flocks of Starlings moved around the village as did small gulls going from one feeding area to another.
Foxhill park held 6 Blue Tits and 3 Greenfinch midday and on the walk back to work a fast tight flock of Golden Plover flew from the direction of the Dailie fields towards Shelf Moor. Thanks to NK for following it up and walking down to check the fields out but it seems the Lapwing flock is still lower down nearer Northowram.
You may wonder what the 2 photos above have to do with owt, well the answer is nowt, it was just something to take so I had,nt carried the camera around the park at lunchtime for nothing.

Like the fox weathervane Bri, not noticed that before, must look out for it next time I am up there! We had a cat like yours down here as well, on the Grand View, but that is closed now and falling apart. I think the cat has gone now, must check!
Keep the photos coming!

When I worked in a garage at Halifax one of the mechanics was a keen photographer and took carvings and statues on buildings in town and he used to say, hundreds of people walk under these every day and no one sees them.
