Queensbury Today.

A bright sunny day with clear blue skies and a drop in temperature but very little moving around.
A few Redwing and Fieldfare were heading >S over Foxhill first light probably from the Queensbury station roost and a single Mistle Thrush went over SW.
Foxhill Park was quiet, as were the skies at midday ,with no gulls present, just a single Pied Wagtail on the changing rooms roof.
A customers report today of up to 4 Snipe at the bottom of the Dailie Fields, flushed by his dog, and 2 Woodcocks flushed by the entrance to the old Holmefield railway tunnel.
Green Woodpecker was also present down there and several winter thrushes in the Hawthorns.
Not a good forecast for the weekend but they have been known to be wrong.
