Soil Hill, mid afternoon

A grey dark hill with horizontal visibility only of about 5 miles with low hanging clouds above though very mild with plenty midges around.
A different story to yesterday with the flock of Mipits moved on along with the Reed Buntings and no sign of the Jack Snipe in its usual haunts.
Just 5 Meadow Pipits left on the west summit along with 2 Mallard, 8 Stock dove and a single cock Pheasant.
A group of 13 Woodpigeon flew >SW below the cloud base whilst LBB gulls headed >N to the Oxenhope roost.
The eastern fields held 37 Common gull along with 5 BH gull.
                                                          A bad birding week coming up with work in the mornings and a wallpapering job for the daughter in the afternoons then early darkness in the evenings but I,m sure I,ll find a bit of something to blog.

Hi Bri.
Saw your car parked up, as I went home along Perseverance.
Waited for your blog, tonight, with trepidation - in case I'd missed a Snow Bunt!!

Blackpool was like you said, lots of cars!!

If you are too busy decorating, to do any birding, you could always tell us about the FLOCK wallpaper you are using. (Witty or what?).
