Monday + Work = No Fog !

A typical Monday morning, back at work and no sign of fog.
A record count of 72 Common gulls were in Foxhill park this morning first light but these soon dispersed when the early dog walkers started to arrive.
A trickle of Meadow Pipits headed over south and a count of 9 Redwing flew over >W throughout the day. The first of the Woodpigeons started coming over >S.
Otherwise all was quiet with no grapevine or Oxenhope watch point reports.
Its looking like we have missed the Meadow Pipit surge this year so the next on the list now is a push of Redwings and Fieldfares and the last in the move, Woodpigeons which usually come over in their hundreds near the end of the month. After that its geese and Whooper Swans and hopefully a Bewick or two. Well you,ve got to keep optimistic have,nt you.

Thats right Dave, HC gave me that name from Last of the Summer Wine and its stuck now because I seem to get more than my share of fog. Howard is Compo and DCB is Clegg. Thats going back to the days when the 3 of us did the Oxenhope vis mig.
