Queensbury, good start poor finale.

                                 Plenty Common gulls >E


                                           Murky cloud to the east from Foxhill
                  Menwith Hill golf balls over Shipley Glen from Foxhill
                                       Foxhills look of autumn.

A bright start this morning with a good passage of movement in mainly small numbers but a good variety of species including, Skylarks, Blackbirds, Meadow Pipits, Green and Chaffinch, Fieldfare, Redwing and Wood Pigeon all >S.
Meadow Pipits were most numerous with over 100 counted to and at work, me not the Pipits.
Keeping in contact with DCB at Oxenhope warned me of a bank of fog heading towards Queensbury which soon arrived and blanked everything by 1015hrs and refused to clear until mid day when I was left with clear blue empty skies despite DCB getting several skeins of Pink Footed geese over the Aire Valley and reports of several geese over Manchester.
Common gulls were relocating today with a good count of 72 in Foxhill park first light and several moving >E throughout the day.
