During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

Queensbury Visible Migration Today

Good grey skies this morning and a light >SSE led to a slightly better movement but still very slow making me suspect that the big Meadow Pipit movement is not going to happen like the last 3 years where the Mipits have tended to go down the coastal route as apposed to inland. Years ago we used to be counting  over 10,000 a day when they came passed us in swarms but those sort of days seem to have gone now. Hopefully they,ll be a big push next month.
                                                        Common gull numbers are building now with the Foxhill flock at around 45 early morning, which usually increases to around 80 over the winter.
No time to get out birding today with granddaughter duties other than vis migging early morn before work and I was surprised to find it dark at 1900 hrs this evening when I took the dogs out, where have the light nights suddenly gone?
