Queensbury Today

A blustery dark start to the day as I checked out Queensbury South on route to work.
A few Mipits went overhead >W at the trailer park field along with 9 Alba Wagtails also west.
15 Lapwing were in the horse field near the farm along with around 60 Starling and a few Jackdaws.
Several small gulls, mostly Black Headeds, were in fields along Corporal Lane whilst a few Linnets were on the wires.
No sign of the Little Owls but probably disturbed by farmer activity.
A flock of around 40 Goldfinch were in the horse field on Green Lane with another 7 Pied Wagtails on the deck.
Midday in Foxhill park found yet more Pied Wagtails with 6 on the top pitch and several newly arrived Robins in bushes around the edge of the field.
Right on cue today was the arrival of a Little Grebe at Ogden reported by NK, see his blog for full report.
Hope this weekend is kind to any birders out there.
