Soil Hill, last light check.

                      A snowy Ingleborough from Soil Hill

                                   Sunset from Soil Hill

                                                 Last light

With limited time today it was up to Soil Hill at 1445 hrs for a last hour before darkness to continue the Snow Bunt hunt.
A icy cold E>4 blew but visibility was good with the sun reflecting on the snow still covering Ingleborough. Good to bump into DJS up there with the same target bird as me but both dipped but went away happy that we had checked the area and reassured ourselves that there were none present.
                                           The cold wind was keeping the bird life down with just a couple of Meadow Pipits present and a few gulls overhead as well as a single male Blackbird going to roost in the plantation. It was 19th November last year when DJS turned a Snow Bunting up on the hill , the only winter bird found up there so hopefully this year will give some better results.
