A calmer Queensbury.

             An influx of Collared Doves and Jackdaws
                         in the village
                                        Bit of a scrap going on.
 Jackdaws try to nest under the flat stone on
         the right every year but never make it.

Thick fog started off the morning but this cleared by 0830hr leaving grey damp skies but very calm and mild.
A few left over Woodpigeons were going over >S which seemed insignificant after yesterdays bonanza. Its amazing how so many woodpigeons throughout the country all know to go on the same day. Thanks to HC for texting me their yesterdays total Woodpigeon count which was a record busting 61.000 birds. All results from around the country can be found on Trektellen.org.

Otherwise today the skies were quiet but with several reports from different sources of winter thrushes coming in off the North sea onto the east coast brings us to expect a mega invasion of Redwing and Fieldfare over our area either tomorrow or the weekend if conditions are favourable.

Thanks to Bradshaw John for checking out Royds Hall Dam for the yellow billed swans reported by G.J.Wood but unfortunately they had moved on as expected. See Johns blog for his report and pictures.
No news today on the Woodlark or Richards Pipit.

Hope you enjoy Halloween tomorrow if you,re partying or dressing up, just keep the fireworks down, they scare my dogs witless!

Needed some poor weather for the yellow bills to hang about I guess.
Lots of dogs and dog walkers there.
