One of those quiet days.

                                            Foxhill Common gull



A poor start to the morning with low cloud and drizzle but this soon cleared leaving a decent sunny day
An early morning text from HC at Oxenhope started the ball rolling with a splendid 3 Whoopers >SW heading towards Hebden bridge. After that all went pear shaped with no more calls from the Oxenhope lads and all quiet from NK who was doing the Ogden run. Bradshaw John and Sue checked out Keighley Reservoir area which produced a small flock of Golden Plover . See NK and JLs reports for todays findings.
No continuation today of yesterdays trans Pennine Pink Footed Goose move but I,m sure we have,nt seen the last of them.
Interesting to find a Gt Spotted Wdpecker in the trees in Foxhill park at lunch time , obviously a mover as not an area for peckers, not to mention a fast mover as it headed >W avoiding Quick Draw Magraw , me with the camera.

Beautiful gull shot Bri.
Good news on the Whoopers as well - reminds me of a very foggy day at Ogden when I neatly missed 'em trying to photo a Nuthatch.

(Thanks for the Keighley Moor mention)
