Vis Mig fogged off a.m./ Old Guy Rd, Thornton Rd, Harp Lane.

              Looking >E over the station from Thornton Rd
                         Triangular station
                      An overgrown Harp Lane

We was enveloped in fog up here in the gods this morning so no vis mig but a check of the cricket field found a record number of 15 Pied Wagtails, mainly juvs.  Also present were around 30 Meadow Pipits, 2 Wheatear , 4 Common gulls and c40 Starling.

A 15 minute watch from Thornton Rd east over the station looking as far as Otley Chevin produced several Swallows and House Martins all >W along with 3 Skylarks.
LBB gulls were moving >N up the Aire valley and a distant Cormorant headed >NW.

A dog walk down Harp Lane this evening found 8 Blue tits, 1 Coal Tit and a single Willow Warbler.

My prediction for Little Egret at Ogden nearly came off this morning when Steve Loveric saw 3 come into Ringstone but were soon moved on by gulls leaving high and south. Well done to Steve being up there early doors otherwise they would have gone through unnoticed . These were possibly some of the Lindley Wood reservoir birds making their way South.
