Queensbury, Woodpigs, Wagtails and Fieldfares

                                       Woodpigeons heading >S



An ideal vis mig morning with a slight damp haze and calm with a good grey sky.
Woodpigeons were the first over all >S in good flocks of around 50 up to 100 flying directly over the village.
Meadow Pipits were moving all morning but only in twos and threes also >S whilst 2 seperate groups of 4 and 6 Alba Wagtails went in the same direction along with 2 Skylark.
The Woodpigs had fizzled out by 0830hrs when Fieldfare began to come over in some massive flocks of 100+ again over the village High Street >S with the last flock being noted at 1000hrs .
These had the jizz of new in birds flying very high and slow, unlike Fieldfares earlier in the week coming over low and fast.
A report today from Ken Jarvis of the Shelf Moor winter Lapwing flock increasing with c 100 birds this afternoon in Tracys field by the trailer park, thanks for the call Ken.
