Skies Alive

                                         Distant Pinkies over towards Bradford

                                                Skies full of Woodpigeons
                                                Several flocks of Fieldfare

A cracking day both weather wise and bird wise with skies full of movement from first light.
Woodpigeons were the main movers with several large flocks over >S sparkling in the sunlight and continuing to move until about 0915hrs.
Fieldfares were heading >S but going by the height and jizz these were probably established birds moving from roosts and heading towards feeding grounds but a good sight to see estimating about 300 birds up until 0930hrs.
Mid morning a fast thinking NK called me shouting down the phone, " get out in the car park quick, Pinkies heading your way from Soil Hill.
After grabbing the camera I shot out into the car park in time to see 95 Pinkies in the distance well over to the east of me heading >ESE and just in range of a few record shots, thanks for the call Nigel.
A later call from Nigel from his garden with 3 Cormorants over the garage >S ended up in a dip when they were just too fast for me.
By lunch time all was quiet, phew!
