Round and About

                           Plenty passerines, Littlemoor Park

                               Lapwing and Starling flypast
                                 Settled down

                                          pre roost Jackdaws

A grey afternoon but brighter than a.m. so when the Sunday stuff was done it was down to Clayton to get some better shots of the Waxwings despite roadworks and a massive traffic jam. Amazingly the 3 large garden berry trees were stripped bare and the Waxwings moved on. A walk around the village found several more berry trees but no sign of the Waxwings.
Back through the traffic jam to Queensbury and Littlemoor Park with Woodcock in mind, which was,nt to be.
The park was alive with Great and Blue tits, Chaffinch, Blackbirds, Redwings, a Jay and a single Song Thrush but no chance of a Woodcock.
Down to the wagon park only to find what NK reported this morning, no Snipe around. Usual Lapwings and Starlings and whilst I was on the phone a single Herring gull landed briefly before heading off >W before Id chance of a photo. Another 4 Herring gull went >W over Ringby.
The fields around Green Lane held plenty small gulls with Jackdaws gathering before roosting but otherwise quiet.
Good to meet DP , NP,( Cullingworth Birders ) looking for Snipe.
