Today's news

From BH - c40 Pink-footed Geese over Holmfield  >E at 06:40

Negative news from JB at 07:40  - not a sign of the Buff-breasted Sandpiper at Ringstone. The site was also checked by several observers including AC, CK, KM, AT, NR and myself et al until around 11:00 but still nothing doing other than plenty of corvids and 350 Lapwings (earlier from JB) in the ploughed field, with a good number of  B H Gulls, alba wagtails, a few Starlings and a small number of Golden Plover that soon disappeared.
On the shoreline, a few B H and Common Gulls and several Snipe with 1 G C Grebe on the res'r.
7 Grey Partridge

Also another special bird today and a first as far as I know this year for Calderdale - a Sandwich Tern  >W over Todmorden at 10:40 from B L
