Dinner time Dailies dash and a near miss with the Pinkies.

  Looking down the Dailies to Queensbury triangular
  railway station. The triangle where the tracks went
can be seen by the trees.
Tracks to Clayton, Thornton and Holmefield.
    East over the station to beyond Pateley Bridge.
                  Looking over smoky Bradford.
   This very pale, well speckled Staring had me going .
 It stood out from the rest even with no optics

The overnight frost and cold east wind livened things up slightly today with around 80 Woodpigeons over >S first light along with a smidging of Mipits and 3 Skylark.
Dinner time in Foxhill park produced 2 Cormorant over high and >N and a single Jay high and >W.
With high expectations of Pinkies to the east I dashed to the top of the Dailies only to find several LBB gulls heading >N up the air valley but 3 hours later a text from HC reported 130 Pinkies over Yeadon airport >E, just where I had been watching earlier.
Thanks for the text Compo.

The Starling looks more like a Mistle Thrush Bri.
Just a matter of time before one of your Pinkies specials I syspect.
