Dailies Dinnertime Dash

       Frozen ground left a gull free Foxhill park
        Looking east from the top of the Dalies
           The old triangular railway station

                Across over Black Hill with Bradford beyond.

A bright sunny day with just a bank of fog over briefly before lunch time with otherwise clear blue skies.
A good start off this morning with 5 Pink Footed geese over at 0845 heading >E which nearly got past me but luckily spotted them disappearing over Station Rd flying fast and low.
Foxhill park was void of gulls at midday due to frozen ground but there were several Goldfinch and tits moving through the hedges.
A quick look from the top of the Dailies hoping for geese or swans just produced several Herring and LBB gulls heading up the Aire Valley >N whilst several winter thrushes were still down in the station after the few remaining Hawthorn berries.
Shelf Moor trailer park fields were void of bird life once again.

On a sad note, I received the news this morning of customer and dedicated daily watcher of my blog being killed in a road accident on the boundary of Queensbury  on Boxing Day evening due to the heavy snow. Graham Maloney was ironically booked into the garage today where he often called in when passing to ask about Lynda,s health and comment on my blog reports. He was a lovely man and will be sadly missed.  Our deepest sympathy to Mrs Maloney and family.
