Shelf Moor Snipe field

                                     Shelf Moor Snipe fields, pics from 2013

                                 A record of 48 in Dec 2013

                                    A lucky shot flypast


            More settled late autumn than Spring






An 0700hrs visit to the Raggalds Flood this morning was thwarted due to thick fog so it was a check on a misty Shelf Moor trailer park field in a cold E>5.
Meadow Pipits numbers are increasing ready for moving onto the moors with around 30 present along with c150 Starling.
A single Snipe flew in but immediately moved on again disturbed by the horses now constantly tethered in the juncus field.
A good sighting today of 2 Great Black Backed gulls >W over the M621, thats one traffic jam I was pleased about.
One more dark evening then light nights at last.
Lets hope these easterlies have blown some goodies in for the weekend.
