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 still snowed under.

       
 Once again a very short lived sunrise
                   

                            Shortly followed by this

More overnight snow and a day of heavy snow showers with once again bad road conditions and temperatures never rising above 3 deg.
A late start off to town shopping due to more snow shoveling and dog duties but amazed to find no sign of snow in Halifax, and Queensbury with a good 8". A check of the Rowans in Sainsburys car park failed to turn up any Waxwings, just a few Blackbirds and a Mistle Thrush.
Not home until 1515 hrs when the light was rapidly fading and conditions bad ,still with heavy snow showers so had to give the usual late afternoon birding trip a miss.
                                                           A text at 1545 hrs from my watchman Peter Turner at Horton Bank Top reported 4 Whooper Swans heading towards Queensbury but despite dashing out in the garden, camera in hand, they avoided me possible veering more west with a chance of coming down on one of the local reservoirs which will be checked out in the morning.
                                               Thanks for the text Peter.
