Amazing Sunday morning skies from Leeshaw

                                   First sun
                                  Sun touching the top of the moor
                                       Early sun being masked with cloud
                                            Looking west over the backing
                                                 Mottled sky
                                            Looking NW over the reservoir
                                         Amazing cloud formation

                                      A good bird movement morning

Just some snaps of interesting skies over Leeshaw reservoir from my Sunday morning trip.
These sort of skies seemed to please the birds with good movement of Woodpigeon and Cormorants a.m. and Pink Footed geese p.m.

The weather up here in Queensbury started off half right with a hint of sunrise and blue sky but this rapidly deteriorated by late morning into a strong SSW>5-6 and heavy rain showers, the showers being at their worst while I was dog walking up Foxhill at lunch time but thats the norm for me.
A few small gulls were on the football pitch with 3 LBBs over >W, otherwise, in contrast to yesterday, all was quiet.

Probably Pinkies at this time of year Mark.
You,re doing well on the Bullfinch, a nice garden bird.
Probably the same group that hang around the old station tunnel entrance area.
