Not a sign of a Common Sand this pm Bri - all hiding away I think. Complete change in the weather today. Queensbury would be back to normal then?

Thats right Dave , cold westerly and horizontal rain. Im suprised the Common Sands are,nt about but yesterday they spent a lot of time on the mud in the NE corner and took some finding. Possibly birds moving through. DCB has some back at Oxenhope also.
