Gulls and Tit flocks

Black Headed gulls heading North

A slightly better day with longer periods of clear skies though the fog hung about all the day. Temperatures were well up with 7 degrees in the garage.
Several tit flocks were moving through the village today with groups of up to 9 Blue Tits and odd Coal Tits showing in various gardens on the way to work.
One flock was on waste land by the side of the garage around a wild rose hip shrub with 5 Blue Tit, 2 Coal Tit a Wren, 2 Dunnocks and a Blackbird. I think they must be finding food covered by snow for so long.
During the clear patches gulls dominated the sky with several groups of 20+ high up and heading >N.
A scattering of big gulls went over but these were mainly LBBs with one or two Herring gulls in amongst, all were heading >NW.
A Tawny Owl flew across the main Halifax / Shelf road this evening and went behind the filling station near Shelf roundabout.
