Watching West and East, vis mig and a surprise photo.

  Looking west Old Guy Rd towards Withins
                     Cricket field, a haven for birds
                                    Looking east, Thornton Rd towards Otley
             Bottom of the Dailie fields
                                   Over Queensbury station
                                                   View NE
            Plenty Collared Doves moving through the village
         Mega distant Wheatear photo turned out to be a Whinchat

An early watch from Old Guy Rd cricket field westward produced a steady flow of traffic, mainly hirundines
whilst a very distant bird which I took for Wheatear but looked more Mipit size turned out to be a Whinchat when the pics got computerized.

A quick lunchtime watch east over the old station Produced a good flow of mainly House Martins all very high.

True to form since this area has been watched over several years from early August onward into Autumn, good old Whinchat turns up.
