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.

Fieldfare on the move

A better day with a lighter WSW >4 and clear skies with the rain holding off till late afternoon.
Several Fieldfare were moving over Thornton at lunch time all heading >N up the Aire Valley.
Around 200 were seen in the short time that I was up Foxhill park with the dogs but no reports of geese over the area today.
A quick visit to the Tawny Owl site at dinner time again drew a blank with neither of the 2 birds present and no pellets beneath the tree although the garden owner has seen them both since Christmas.
Over half way through the week now and the forecast looks a little better for the weekend which may produce another move of Pinkies.
