That's a nice haul and a good sign of movement. Sunday is forecast as a brighter less windy day, let's hope there's even more stuff moving.

A good do with the Lapwing flock. Not many at Ringstone yet but generally we have had some decent winter counts this year around Calderdale. Probably the milder weather has helped.
