Queensbury Today and vis mig

                                             Big bird heading >S
                                  Dark skies over Foxhill this evening

             Good moving sky but no Swifts showing.

A good start to the morning with 62 small gulls on Foxhill park at 0600hrs but these soon left when dog walkers appeared, around 75% BHGs and 25% Commons.
The early misty skies got things moving slightly with a few Mipits over Old Guy Rd >WSW along with 2 very high Herons up in the mist >W high enough to be movers.
The cricket pitch was deserted other than the Pied Wags but there were plenty white feathers on the ground showing that the gulls had been there earlier.
Dinner time on Foxhill provided a low number of moving Swallows and a couple of bloggers around the trees for the masses of Black fly.
This evening the skies were perfect for moving Swifts over or even an odd Osprey but neither happened, just 3 Herring gulls >W.

A steady away day for you there Bri.
What does blogging mean please?

(Hope I've spelt that right.)

Blogging is a vis mig word for a moving bird that hangs around in one area for a while, such as a wader on the move may spend a few days at Fly Flatts before moving on again. Whilst its there its known as a blogger.

A mind of information, this site !

I still keep looking on the web for blogs written by birds.

At least they could tell us where they were.
