Queensbury today

Another dreaded day of baking sunshine and looking at the forecast it could go on all next week, Great !!
Even the ENE>4 today failed to stir any bird movement putting a complete stop to the migration that was just nicely getting going.
Only thing of note today were plenty Swallows over mainly south though several were bloggers and Swifts were absent over the village unless I get any later this evening, not long now before they,re gone.
A few LBB gulls were heading >N up the Aire Valley at midday but otherwise the clear blue skies were once again empty.
Off to do my rain dance now.
