Pinkies for Queensbury

             Pink Footed Geese over the garage.



                                                 Rear section
                                        Front Section  c120

A cracking day in Queensbury up above the cloud base which blanked out just about the rest of the country.
Fieldfare movement was steady but mainly bounce back birds whilst a few late Meadow Pipits headed >S.
NK was out first light collecting birds like there was no tomorrow, my phone was on melt down.
See Nigels blog for a great report plus an amazing LEO photo. One of NKs sightings from Soil Hill was the above skein of Pink Footed geese which came more or less over the garage at 0845 hrs >SE.
With a drake Shoveler on Ogden, NK, a gulped down dinner and rushed dog walk then on to a dash to get a pic with about 15 minutes to get there and back but the race was cut short when I got to the top of Ned Hill and saw the fog now moving across Ogden.
With 10 minutes spare I chanced a dash across Soil Hill and half way down the North slope to try get a good shot of the LEO but the bird was,nt playing so a dash back to the car , a few gasps of breath and back to work just in time to see the fog rolling in blanking us out.
Thanks for the calls Nigel.
