Queensbury in the sun.

         A cold wintery walk to work this morning
           Sun up and clear skies at 0745 hrs.
            2 Corvids mobbing Sparrowhawk very high
                       over the garage.

A stonking day for out birding today, just a shame it was Monday, with wall to wall sunshine and clear blue skies day long.
The cold spell seemed to liven things up a bit with several Collared Doves now back in the area whilst 2 Wrens were knocking around the garage car park.
Dinner time dog walk in Foxhill park found 18 Common gulls and 11 Black Headed, again with a few Collared Doves around the perimeter.
Early afternoon I heard corvid aggression calls so dashed out of the garage into the car park, camera in hand, to see 2 corvids very high mobbing a Sparrowhawk. They were very hard to pin point with the small camera so ended up with just the one shot before they drifted into the sun and lost from sight. A few minutes later the two corvids flew back over having safely seen the Sprawk out of the area.
