                                    A shrouded Fly Flatts
              Battle of the wings at Ogden.

A cold and wet N>5 today brought a few flocks of Redwing into the area along with 5 Whooper Swans over Oxenhope, reports from HC and DJS.
The dry start to the morning saw a few Meadow Pipits >S and 9 Chaffinch also >S along with several LBB gulls very high and slowly soaring >S looking like raptors up in the grey skies. By 0900hrs the rain had arrived and any signs of vis mig had gone.
Well done to HC today sticking it out high up on Sentry Hill in shocking conditions vis mig watching and DJS checking the reservoirs.

Never know what might turn up Bri in these conditions. Just sometimes hard work finding them! Well done with all your regular Q'by reports and your photos are always a treat - wait till you do get some raptors up over Q'by !!

Thanks Dave, getting harder now to find info with dark mornings and evenings but something usually turns up.
