Foxhill Today

                                            Foxhill Kestrel

A brighter cool day but remaining dry with a strong W>5 decreasing 4 late p.m.
Several LBB gulls were moving over >NE this evening heading towards the Eccup reservoir winter roost site which will now have broken up so not sure if these were none breeders or just late movers.
Three Kestrels are being seen regular around the Grimston field along with up to 4 Mistle Thrush whilst a pair of Collared Doves are checking out a local conifer for a nest site.
Hoped to check out Raggalds Flood and get up Soil Hill for the Ring Ouzels but today was one of those days with not enough hours in it so neither happened.
