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

                                   We breed mean looking crows in Queensbury.


                                               This years offspring.

A better moving day today with Meadow Pipits over in force >S till just after midday then taken over with Swallows and finches.
Foxhill park at lunch time was down to a trickle of Mipits but several Chaffinch, Greenfinch and Goldfinch were all heading >SW.
Swallows continued moving >S until last light.
Just as darkness closed in, 1915hrs, 4 Pipistrelle bats were hunting over the trees in Foxhill Park along with another single bat more than twice the size, about the size of a Swallow but much plumper. Dont do Bats so that could be one for Bruces team.
Another customers report of Pinkies moving , this time down the east coast past Hornsea heading for The Wash in big numbers. Looks like a lot are following the coastlines down this year and missing us out.
Last night I predicted winter thrushes being seen any day now and the first Redwings were spotted today over Northowram, AC.

That Crow will remind some birders of their mother in law.
