No wildlife sightings including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals. BS.

Queensbury Today

A better day but very dull and drab still with a strong SW>5 but dry till late afternoon.

A flock of 9 Redwing came over mid afternoon >NE and several LBBs flew over heading >NW.
Otherwise things were quiet with 11 Commons and 6 BH gulls in the park midday and 2 Pied Wags on the top pitch.
NK Queensburybirder called to say he is having computer problems and after reporting 3 Snow Bunts on Soil Hill he managed to turn up the 4th on a second visit but 1 bird was keeping away from the other 3 favouring the northern end and around the heather to the NW. Hopefully Nigel will soon have things back to normal.

Thanks for the backup Brian, I did manage to include this info under the Ogden Post 'birdtrack table' (Read More >>)I reckon it's a trip to the Computer stores very soon if not earlier!

Well done for finding No 4.
I am hoping the males start to turn into summer plumage before they go - but that might be wishful thinking! They might wait to get back to the Arctic where it's warmer than the hill!!!!!

You,ve got a point there Dave, when they get back to the Arctic they,ll probably think they,ve gone South by mistake.

Hope the computer holds out Nigel, we can,t do without your input.
