Oxenhope, p.m. visit

                                         Fieldfares still moving through


           Bright Common gulls standing out in the dark background


      The dark rain cloud to the right of the rainbow moved right across Bradford
     Baildon Keighley and on into the dales.
                                          Gull crossing the rainbow
                                        Clouds approaching Windy Corner

Oxenhope, windy corner - 1500-1700hrs. Slight SW>4 Rain showers all around but missed me, for a change.
Fieldfare were still passing through all >W but in much smaller groups than yesterday afternoon, the largest flock being 100 and several small groups of a dozen or less.
Lapwings and Starlings were the only other movers with no continuation of this mornings Pinkie movement.
Unlike yesterday no Fieldfares came down in the wood or on the moor last light.
Good to get male Goosanders back on the water.
