Pinkies all around but only snow for Queensbury.

 This car came in today for a puncture !
   New expensive tyre needed here
  Looks like this customer has made an enemy.
   Todays dinner hour dog walk


Whilst getting messages of Pinkies moving all around the area
  this is as good as Queensbury got.

Icy conditions early morning followed by frequent heavy snow showers giving a good covering which froze solid after dark.
Some bright clear Pinkie moving skies in amongst the showers with several reports of geese moving >W all to the south of us.
Mid afternoon saw around 15 LBB gulls and at least 2 Herring gulls >N towards the Aire Valley whilst 9 Redwing came over the garage >S just on last light.
There should be plenty Pink Footed Goose sightings this weekend and its just 2 year since that 44 Barnacles were at Leeshaw.
