Redwings and Tit flocks for the graveyard

                  A damp murky Foxhill park, midday
An autumnal Chapel Lane graveyard.



A mild but wet and misty day with the wind swung around to the SE>4.
A few Redwings came over the garage first light but disappointing after HC clocked c 6000 Redwing over Oxenhope yesterday.
Foxhill park was quiet at lunch time in heavy rain other than a scattering of small gulls probing on the football pitches.
On the way back to work a commotion was going on in the Chapel Lane graveyard with 2 Blackbirds going mad in a Holly bush full of berries. On closer inspection 2 Redwing flew out of the top of the bush and away over the village, obviously the Blackbirds were protecting their berry supply.
Deeper in the graveyard a flock of around 12 Blue, Great and Coal tits were moving about low down through the foliage.
Better start checking Soil Hill for Snow Bunting soon seeing as HC had one over Oxenhope yesterday.

Those trees in Chapel Lane Graveyard Brian, I spent half my life up them as a youngster with Dave Shep (before his JCB days !)

Thats right Howard, we used to spend our time in the Foxhill trees. You never see lads climbing trees now, probably cos they,d have to put their computer game down.
