Late morning
Lots of Coal Tits (maybe 20+) feeding with other tits in one area of woodland near the 'Giant's Tooth' along with a single Goldcrest, a Nuthatch and a Treecreeper
1 Sparrowhawk over
1 Cormorant on the water
12 Canada Geese
c80 Mallard
c80 B H Gulls and a few Common Gulls in with them
A call from BS alerting of a big skein of 'Pinkies' over Queensbury around 12:30 - we just managed to see them in the distance heading towards Thornton Moor though they changed direction >N against a big bank of cloud over the moor. I got some poor distant photo's but they were just good enough to get a close count of c215. Thanks bri we would have missed them without your call. !!
