Gusty Queensbury.

A mainly dry day but winds reaching gale to near severe gale W>8 gusting >9 at Foxhill midday with a enormous flash of lightening and crack of thunder around 1700hrs.
Took the dogs over the Mountain this evening to find the wind has dropped considerably but forecast over the weekend.
Watch for those tree branches at the moment as many have been broken by the recent weight of snow and are wedged in position but now being shook loose with the wind.
A Queensbury walker took a trip around St Ives wood, Bingley yesterday and one of the unfortunate ladies in the party got twotted on the head with a falling branch and ended up leaving St Ives courtesy of an ambulance, luckily nothing serious.
Nothing exciting on the bird scene today other than 7 Redwings going into trees at the top of Station Rd p.m. possible the same birds as seen today by NK.
At least the dreaded January is out now so another 2-3 weeks and anything could happen.

I can't stop laughing at your use of the word 'twotted' it must be 40 years ago since I last heard it. Pity about the circumstance of course.

I saw the lightening. It was a beauty!

I think I might give St.Ives a miss this weekend.

Hard hat required this weekend Tracy.

Glad you like the technical term Nigel.
