Pink Footed Geese movement

Skeins of Pink Footed Geese heading west  at midday today

With news out via AC,see his Northowram blog, at midday today that Pinkies were on the move West with a total of near 800 birds I was unfortunately on the way to visit the daughter at the other side of Sowerby Bridge but thought that I was heading in the right direction to pick them up, wrong. With a frightening drive over there watching the sky instead of the road we arrived without hitting anything and then a watch from the garden which overlooks the valley, nothing.
Luckily for me my P.A. Tracy was on the ball snapping the skeins as they came over her location and saved the day with sending me the above photos. Thanks for that Tracy, you,re doing a great job.

Hi Bri !,
At approx 2.30pm today , I spotted some Redwings , (between 17-20) feeding on some old bread and xmas leftovers. I was able to get up close ( about 20ft) and they were not fazed at all. Lovely looking birds ...... Turdus****** ?
