No Pinkies for me today/ Soil Hill

                          Top of the world. Soil Hill looking >SW.
              Oxenhope watchpoint from Soil Hill

                               Sparrowhawk mobbed with corvid.

Soil Hill   1500-1630hrs  Cold ENE> 5  broken cloud.
Excuse shaky typing but after an hour and a half of circling doing a 360degrees watch on Soil Hill it takes a while for your head to get settled.
The wind had dropped slightly and the massive area I was scanning was sure to produce PF Geese,or so I thought, but it wasnt to be. All I got was 2 Snipe >NW, 5 Swallow >S, a few Mipits >N ? and a Sparrowhawk mobbed with corvids. Oh yes, and a DJS on the opposite hill to me (Hunter Hill) squat down
between the hillocks trying to find shelter from the wind. Oh well, roll on next Sunday.

Good to see you again today Bri, even if you were up in 'your favourite spot' out on that elevated position and me cowering behind a hummock on Hunter Hill. Hard work at both spots today but never mind you are back to the raptor watchpoint in the morning ! Nice one with the Woodcock by the way - always a special bird.
