Woodpigeons starting to move.

First light saw the start of the Woodpigeon movement this morning but not yet in great numbers . Around 200 >S were counted but this fizzled out by 0830 hrs. Good numbers are starting to be recorded around the area although the cold front and strong winds forecast may put the mockers on it.
On the bright side, this weekend sees the end of the Grouse shooting season so all the sad little men will no longer be trekking over our moors. The Pheasant season continues but that does,nt really seem to affect our area.
Target birds for the weekend, Pink Footed Geese, Whooper Swan, Wigeon and mainly anything with feathers and wings that flies.
Give those reservoirs a good coating of looking at.
