Mega for Oxenhope and an early Redwing for Queensbury

      Early morning vis mig from Old Guy Road cricket pitch

Another steady morning on the vis mig scene with just a handful of Meadow Pipits very high and >S along with 8 Skylarks. All but 6 Skylarks had gone from the cricket pitch this morning whilst 8 Pied Wags were present.
A mega bird west over Oxenhope and possibly Fly Flatts this morning with an Arctic Skua passing the Oxenhope watch point. Thanks to HC for the text.
A surprise mid morning for me with a single Redwing low over the garage although there has been a few sightings around the country today according to Trektellen as well as large skeins of Pink Footed Geese mainly along the east yorkshire coast.
A text from Angela and Gary this morning with a singing Chiffchaff in their Boothtown garden.
Eyes on the skies this weekend.
