Good that you gave it a go Dave, shame about the Pinkies but good to know they are still moving around as they,ve been quiet for a while.

Didn't see any sign of the Shelf Moor Lapwing flock today. I usually see them flying around there at a distance. I guess they are still there and probably stay awhile until the weather gets cold !
