More near misses for Queensbury

With Pink Footed Geese all around the area today we still failed to get any over Queensbury. 2 skeins were heading for us but as usual drifted to the west or east of us being reluctant to waste that extra energy by climbing higher to get over Queensbury .
Several Fieldfares were on the move this morning with a total of 42 in small groups over the garage >SW early a.m.
                       Regular checks on the Rowan near the garage that held 2 Waxwings yesterday, reported by Yorkshire Birding birder Larry, failed to produce today although there are still berries on the tree.
Midday at Foxhill found 18 Common gulls in the park and 11 Redwing in the trees.
                                                           No afternoon birding session again today with a 3 monthly hospital check for Lynda which went well just 3 years on now from her cancer op.
Interesting to see 3 Herring gulls on the roof of St Lukes hospital, Bradford.
                                                          Last day of 2016 birding tomorrow, lets hope it goes out in style with something special for someone. Be nice for someone to turn up a Cedar Waxwing, especially if it was me.

Its possible with so many Waxwings appearing. there seems to be a few sightings each winter mainly Scilly, Wales and Outer Hebrides. At least they,re easy to pick out from Bohemian. Ever the optimist.
