Gulls on the move

                       Foxhill Common Gull
                         Just missed the sunset on Roper Lane after work

                                          Withins Gap
                                  SW over Illingworth

A frosty start leaving a bright clear day though quiet overhead until I was coming out of work at 1715hrs when several gulls were moving over >W and >NW.
A quick drive around Roper Lane, unfortunately just missing the sunset, produced a count of 38 LBB gulls very high and >NW along with 17 Herring gulls equally as high but >W. All went over in twos and threes.
Four Common gulls were in Foxhill park at lunch time and 3 Black Headed, otherwise nowt doing.
A Buzzard mid day, reported by DJS, heading from Brighouse towards Southowram, never materialized over the village.
