Shelf Moor Trailer field and locals

                                     Plenty local Blackbirds up singing

                                    A nice evening sky over Foxhill


                                  Female Chaffinch checking out the area.

A very icy start with temps below freezing but soon warming up with cloudless skies, sunshine and a mild S>4.
No lunch break today due to mid afternoon appointment so had to make do with a couple of resident snaps when I took the dogs out and a decent sky when we got back at last light.
Perfect conditions for moving Osprey but a bit early yet.
Keep looking out over St James for local Red Kite but it hasnt happened as yet.
Shelf Moor trailer park held around 15 Meadow Pipits and 4 Pied Wagtails as we passed on the way home, the Lapwings have now dispersed and headed for the moors.

Lynda coping well with the radiation so far but says she gets near to panic having her head tied tightly down to the table with the mask which makes it hard to breath for 30 mins. 4 down 26 to go.
