Buzzard and Herring gulls

                                           Bombers Moon this evening
                                   Dark clouds over Foxhill


A brighter warmer day apart from the WNW>5 blowing until late afternoon when all was calm.
Some real black clouds rolled over Foxhill as the sun went down but these amounted to nothing leaving a bright full moon.
7 Herring gulls went over extremely high and >W at 1930hrs whilst 2 Meadow Pipits were on the top pitch.
Coming back from Leeds mid morning a Buzzard flew directly over the car as we came on the M62. Unfortunately, for once there were no traffic hold ups otherwise I could have got a cracking photo of it as the sun shone on its plumage but when you,re doing 70 mph in the middle lane its not easy to get a focus. Hopefully we,ll see it again next time we,re stuck in a queue.
