Soil Hill. p.m. visit

  Perseverance Road entrance
           Over the stone circle to Withins.

Just to prove the formula, SUN + BLUE SKY = NO BIRDS, correct  I trudged up Soil Hill with a low expectancy late afternoon and found no birds, or hardly.
A few Meadow Pipits were present along with 3 Skylark and that was it other than a couple of corvids.
Scanning a full 360 deg there was,nt a bird in the sky.
Malham Cove stood out in the sunshine but the North Yorkshire white horse was only just visible in the haze.
The reservoir at Oxenhope, BOG members only, was heaving with gulls with plenty shoreline exposed right along the western shore but no time to get there this evening and Saturday teatimes are off due to the sad gunmen.
At least after tonights excursion I feel better about going to work tomorrow, hopefully by next weekend the weather will have broke.
