Old Guy Rd, midday, Skylarks galore

                 Black clouds from the garage this morning

         Fall of Skylarks around the cricket pitch









A day of sunshine , showers, rainbows and cool westerlies.
Very little on the move this morning in  the strong wind and heavy showers, just 6 Meadow Pipits counted on my pre work watch.
A trip around Old Guy Rd at lunchtime produced a pleasing number of Skylarks with 15 on the pitch and about another 12 around the walls all moving through.
Also present were 5 Pied Wagtails, 3 being juvs and 1 distant Wheatear.
Good to hear that Snow Buntings, Fieldfare and Redwings are back in the country and Redwings being reported as far south as Manchester today.

A nice surprise with the Skylark.
Hope the Snow Bunts turn up on the hill.
