Soil Hill, late pm.

Just time for a quick check on Soil Hill late afternoon on a dull, overcast and damp visit.
December and still no sign of the target bird, Snow Bunt ,but a few now scarce birds on the hill returned for a visit with 2 Grey Partridge , 1 Pied Wagtail and a female Stonechat whilst 4 Linnet flew overhead dropping down in the tree line to roost.
Two Common Snipe flushed from the west summit whilst 5 Mistle Thrush were around the mast area.
                                          Nothing sky wise other than several gulls heading to the Oxenhope roost and a very distant Buzzard over Whetstone Gate.
