Gulls for Queensbury and a mega for Halifax

                A bright sun up this morning
                      Taken from Chapel Lane

A bright start to the day with mild temperatures but still the strong SW>5.
Smaller numbers of Woodpigeons were still moving over >S from first light but no signs of winter thrushes today.
Big gulls were on the move most of the day with a steady flow of LBBs >NW  but stopping as the rain got heavier mid afternoon.
3 Great Black Backed were amongst 4 LBBs just after lunch and at least 5 Herring gulls were seen heading >W.
A report today of a late Wheatear on the wall opposite Keelham farm shop yesterday afternoon.

A phone call today from an excited NCD saying he was sure he had just flushed a Wood Lark from his watch area at Norton Towers, Halifax and by the time I,d got the message out on the grapevine he rang again to confirm he had re located and photographed it and it was a definite Wood Lark. A great bird for the area  and hopefully the poor weather will keep it down so others can see it tomorrow.
See Calderbirds blog for details.
