Northowram/ Queensbury south, p.m. visit.

                                   NK searching the Juncus
                                             Coming up for air.
                Small break away Lapwing flock
                                           Big Bill

                                        1 of 4 Snipe
A visit to Sainsburys was on the cards this p.m.,where it was nice to bump into Bruce, but this then developed into the Range and Pound Stretcher so it was late in the afternoon when I got out although on the way home a Great Black Backed gull flew >W over Ringby.
First stop was Northowram cricket pitch area where once again the fields were near empty of gulls and Jackdaws although 3 Herring gulls went over >W.
The field beyond the cricket pitch with the line of trees down the private lane held 6 Blackbirds and 1 Mistle Thrush with a few Fieldfare in the trees.
Back at the trailer park it was good to meet NK, who had more sense than me and donned on wellies , so I was the one with wet feet.
Disappointingly as reported by NK, see his blog, motorcross bikes were on the quarry site next to the juncus field hence only 4 Snipe could be found along with 1 Reed Bunting whilst a small group of 50+ Lapwing were mobile overhead.
A Heron was moving around the various ponds in the area and Starlings were going to roost.
