Queensbury vis mig

              Sun going down last night over Foxhill
          Plenty Meadow Pipits scattered across the cricket field
      Jackdaws in good numbers at the moment around the village
         Woodpigeons starting to flock but these are the last
     to move going on through November.

A murky, cloudy morning but 2 mile visibility so enough for a short pre work vis mig watch from Old Guy Rd.
The cricket pitch was alive with Mipits new in but no sign on the long staying Pied Wagtails or Wheatears.

Vis Mig   20 minutes
