Queensbury, fog stopped play.


         Black Dyke Mills chimney looming through the fog

                                Frozen berries in Foxhill

                                  The scene at midday
A real miserable day with a clear start then fog closing in, at first low lying with blue skies above, then total fog for the rest of the day. Temperatures around - 3 degrees with the temp in the garage never going above 1 degree.
The only bird life seen was the resident House Sparrows, Starlings and small gulls squabbling for food.
About 4 Pied Wagtails were on the rooftop of Morrisons at Illingworth in the dark this evening so there may be a roost building up nearby.

Fantastic shot of the looming chimney. Interesting about the P wags too. Wall to wall sunshine today as we went into Lancashire half a mile after Jct 22 !

Fingers crossed. It was a nightmare coming home tonight too!
