Mixenden Res'r

Terrible conditions this afternoon 0 degrees c with wind E F4 to F6 windchill and gusting and blowing snow all over the place!
The Goldeneye have gone - don't blame them
90 B H Gulls
10 Common Gulls
3 L B B Gulls
1 male Sparrowhawk over
1 Starling
6 Mallard
+ a few corvids

Then went to Ogden - planned to park on Per Lane and walk the rest but no safe place to leave the car with tons of snow piled high snowdrifits/gritters/tractors etc so gave it up as a bad job!
Took one look at Soil Hill and thought - time to put the kettle on!!

Good that you checked Mixy with those loose Whoopers about over Huddersfield this a.m.
Kept watch in the sky after your text but didnt come my way.

Hope the road is passable Jim - it wasn't yetserday except on foot from Heptonstall according to 'Look North'
Also interesting to see the snow piled up beyond measure at Ringstone on the same programme.
