Take a gander at this, More Pinkies for Queensbury.

                Here they come over the mill watched by a
       Woodpigeon on the chimney        
                           Noisy increases as the get near
              Veering to the west of me
 These were a small break off skein behind
   The full mashing DJS got 119 at ogden, will have a count later


A dull low cloud, damp day which soon brightened up mid morning with yet more Pinkies over.
It started at 1000 hrs with a grapevine call from DF reporting c 200 Pinkies over Brighouse NW.
After a short wait I checked outside but not expecting the skein which would miss Qby if they kept NW.
A short talk to JL and Sue in the car park as he picked his car up then just as they left I got a text from my ever trustworthy observer at Shelf Peter Turner reporting a skein over Shelf heading for Queensbury.
Into the office and back out into the car park armed with camera just in time to hear, then see them coming over the mill and past the garage air space.
A quick call to DJS who luckily was at Ogden once again so I was hoping he would get them .
Another 5 minutes and a call from JL at Bradshaw who had just arrived home in time to get them over his house, and then another text from DJS saying he had got them over Ogden.
A real birding relay team effort .
Thanks yet again to Peter Turner at Shelf for his on the ball texts.

After all the Pinkies photographed Bri - Todays song must be "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac.

We are fortunate to get plenty pinks over our way. I wonder how many we miss!
