More windy weather for Queensbury.

A few left overs from Leeshaw yesterday. I always take a few views for if the birding is bad but luckily yesterday the geese turned up.

 Bottom track looking >N. The trees are good for winter
 thrushes and have had Brambling in the past.
    Same track looking >S with the overflow on the right.
  Below the res looking down the valley to the old mill
                           The largest skein of Pinkies, 59.

A wild start to Monday morning with a strong SSW>6 but very mild with temperatures up at 15 deg in the garage.
Woodpigeons continued to move from first light but in much smaller flocks now battling into the head wind and these were joined by several Green and Chaffinches all very low ground hopping >S.
Well done to Bradshaw John for checking the local reservoirs at a time when anything can turn up, his reward was 5 Pinkies >W over Leeshaw, see his report.
Good to see customer, blog watcher Peter Turner in the garage today when he called in to tell me he was the mystery texter who reported the Pinkies over Northowram which I got at Queensbury due to his quick report which was,nt easy as he was on the bus at the time. Thanks for that Peter, keep em coming.

All quiet in Foxhill park at midday other that a few Common and Black Headed gulls on the pitch and a small flock of Goldfinch dodging around the bushes.
Poor do tonight walking home from work in the dark at 1715hrs, had to make do with listening for Redwing contact calls but the noise of the wind did,nt help that.
