Watch those skies, Pinkies and winter thrushes on the way

Pink Footed Geese will be showing anytime now, below are a few previous years skeins.





















With the first report of Fieldfare over today, 3 past the Oxenhope watch point this morning, HC. DCB, thanks for the text Howard, things are really getting moving with Pink Footed geese the next thing to look out for in the skies.
A report today at work from a roofer who was working in Luddenden Foot Friday said he got 2 skeins of noisy plain geese over low with about 30 in each skein and said they were,nt Canadas,
Possibly Pinkies but could have been Greylag although unusual in those numbers unless its a regular site in that area, anyone know ?

No birding for Bri today as been having a new kitchen put in during the week , something Lyndas wanted a while so thought it would cheer her up and give her something to look forward to.
Its in and working now but plenty straightening up and decorating to do but I,ll be out there in the morning.
The kitchen seemed to work as it put a big smile on her face but no doubt it will knock the smile off mine when I get the bill.
