Dinner time Dailies Dash

                                                    Top ot Dailies
     Variety of colour in the old triangular railway station
     Nice bit of habitat at the top of the Dailies has
    been sold for building.

A grey, calm day with a real rise in temperature and a bit more in the way of bird activity.
Yesterdays Tit flock from Foxhill was in the grounds of the Willows medical centre at lunch time today with approx 15 Blue Tits moving around the shrubs.
At the top of Chapel Lane a flock of 21 Fieldfare went over >NW in the direction of Soil Hill and 23 Common gulls were in the park.
A quick visit to the top of the Dailie fields found :-
12 Goldfinch
2 Linnets
several Fieldfare and Redwings down in the station on the Hawthorns
6 Collared Doves
1 Green Woodpecker, heard calling
Several LBB gulls >N up the Aire valley


Re Calderbirds blog on, is the Lapwing field at Shelf Moor in the Halifax recording area, the map shows the boundary surrounding Queensbury  and the trailer field by Cross Lane, bottom right is well in the area. The only parts of Queensbury that are out of the Halifax recording area are squares 5, 6 and 8.

Thanks Graham, well worth a visit up here with some lovely spots and distant views to die for. On a good clear day you can see almost coast to coast from the Humber Bridge to the east and Southport to the West.
