Queensbury Today

At last some decent moving weather with a cool E>4 and low cloud with drizzle, heavy at times, I can almost smell the waders on their way in.
Some signs of movement today with 11 Lapwing over the garage heading towards Shelf Moor and another 6 were seen yesterday which I forgot to report.
A single Cormorant was way out to the east heading >N up the Aire Valley at midday and a report yesterday from Shaun Radcliffe, ( B.O.G.) of a Wheatear above Bingley meaning that they are starting on their way back through the area, better keep an eye out on Soil Hill.
Check those reservoirs this weekend, most are showing small amounts of shoreline now, enough to tempt a wader or two down.
The Calderbirds 2 year report 2011/2012  is now out and available from Woodlesford newsagents, Moor End Rd, Halifax or see Calderbirds blog for other sources .  Well done to Nick Dawtrey for putting it together, a real handy area reference for £ 6.50.

Thanks Bri for that post. Cormorant over Fly Flatts this morning heading that way probabaly dropped in at TMR (?)

Things are livening up a bit now Dave, watch Fly Flatts for Wheatear anytime.

a reminder for me to get down to the southern fields, but...the marsh field at cross lane is absolutely covered in vegetation, and hard to see the ruts n potholes when exiting by the old footpath signpost.
