Redwing Invasion and another Pinkie near miss.

The first birds over this morning as I set off for work were Redwings and this continued until 0930 hrs when the move over the garage stopped. Around 800 counted, all being bounce back birds heading east.  The Oxenhope lads clocked over 10,000 Redwing this morning, at last some good numbers.
Also moving this a.m. were Woodpigeons but only around 30 first light all >S.
All quiet at lunchtime in Foxhill park then another near miss with Pinkies this afternoon. Yesterday afternoon Pinkies were moving to the east of me heading east and this afternoon Pinkies were to the west of me heading west. Todays birds were spotted over Shibden valley by PS, text sent via grapevine.

I might have caught a few Redwing myself today but couldn't get the camera on them.
Things are on the move at last.

Some geese flew over the centre of Bradford today, very low but only about 12 of them.

Probably Canadas Tracy from one of the local parks heading to or from feeding fields.
