Strange coincidence, speckled Jackdaw

 These photos taken down Chapel Lane 13/11/2013.


Walking to work this morning down Chapel Lane at first light several noisy Jackdaws were on the roof tops and amongst them briefly was the speckled Jackdaw seen there 12 months ago or a similar bird. Strange that I,ve had no sightings or reports of sightings then it shows again 1 year on.
A half decent move of Woodpigeons again this morning first light for around 1 hour then all quiet in the grey drizzly skies.
A couple of reports of Pinkies today via the Calderbirds grapevine but again well to the west of us and moving W and NW which seems to be the norm this time so again no sightings over Queensbury.

With vis mig winding down now for another year its time to start the duck hunt watching for Goldeneye, Wigeon, Shelduck, Pintail and thinking big, Smew, well weve got to get one sometime surely.

Ogden Goldeneye should make a re-appearance soon then Bri?
Thanks for the chat earlier.
I'll be asking about Smew (disguised as Goosander!) next!

Goldeneye should be showing on waters anytime but late appearing at Ogden last winter, early January but usually sooner.
If you text me with a Smew at Ogden you,ll see me sprinting over Soil Hill, camera in hand.
