Qby vis mig + Old Guy Road and Roper Lane watch point.

Just a bit on the windy side this morning with a SW>5 blowing but this did,nt seem to stop the early birds with the best morning so far but slowing down when the clouds rolled in.
A check on Old Guy Road cricket pitch ,now that the season is out of the way , produced 12 Pied Wagtails, 3 Wheatears and 11 Common gulls with more Common gulls in the surrounding fields.
A strong wind blowing at the watch point on Roper Lane with very little in the sky and no sign of the target bird, Pink Footed goose, although sightings are starting to come in now with the first few skeins seen heading >W.
