Soil Hill, 4th Easter weekend visit

       Blizzard cloud approaching from the north.
                          This one had my name on it.
                                                Ned Hill track

                                     Towards Bradford

   Bradford getting the full package.

The 4th evening visit of the Easter weekend to Soil Hill again failed to excite me with once again non birding conditions with a strong WNW>6 and rain showers, some heavy and hailstones although luckily I was on the edge of the weather fronts so never got the full mashing.
Just the usual Mipits and Skylarks up there and no sign yet of Wheatear or Ring Ouzel even after a full search of the tree line and other hots pot places.
The weather was interesting to watch with massive hail clouds moving down from the north. One that I followed came across Ingleborough, over Malham Cove and down the Aire valley and away over Bradford, well you have to do something when there are no birds about !
Back to work tomorrow so it could possibly take up.  Roll on May day.
BS.
