Queensbury Today


                                          Foxhill Common Gulls

                                 Rainbows and dark clouds to the North
                            Blustery westerly , Foxhill school weather vane.

A day of sunshine and showers with a blustery westerly wind as todays storm swept past to the south of us.
Meadow pipits were moving well mid morning with several small groups passing overhead all >S, these probably now being late breeders or far northern birds this late in the season.
Foxhill park at lunch time held the usual Common and Black Headed gulls in small numbers and several Redwings were moving around the trees in surrounding gardens.

I,ve added a link to Meg Ghylls blog , a local pencil artist who is also interested in birds and nature in general ,and from her blog you can visit her website with galleries of her drawings, well worth a visit, her drawings are amazing.

Aww, that was an unexpected mention, thankyou very much! I am enjoying your blog, especially this autumn as twice now I have seen birds which you have also reported, probably the same flocks, not only gives me a boost as you confirm my IDs!

Glad you,re enjoying the blog Meg.
Most of the birds I get at the weekend will come over you first heading south,nice to know you,re out there watching.
The drawings you do are amazing, look at the link on my blog to the Farne Islands, there,s a photo of a seal pup which looks like the drawing on your blog header.
Keep up the good work.
