Curlews moving back into the area.

As predicted, a cracking Monday morning with clear blue skies and wall to wall sunshine with just a couple of light showers p.m.
All quiet over Queensbury and even though I kept an eye on the sky no Pinkies were on the move and no grapevine messages reporting them.
One interesting text this morning came from H.C. reporting Curlews moving >W over Oxenhope probably returning to their moorland breeding areas.
A single Sparrowhawk flew fast and low over Foxhill park midday and 15 Common along with 9 Black Headed gulls were on the football pitches.

Lets hope the Curlew bring some settled sunny weather for a change!!

(I could not decipher your last text today Bri.
I'm still using a gas-powered nokia mobile.
I'll hazard a guess at a smiley face with sun glasses!!!).
