A cold blustery day
Mixenden Res'r - just a female Goldeneye, One 3rd winter Herring Gull and an adult L B B Gull with the B H and Common Gulls and 10 Canada Geese

Cold Edge - c135 Canadas, 2 Greylag Geese (but no sign of the recent 'pinkie') 1 f Goldeneye, 1 male Tufted Duck and 23 Lapwings

Mount Tabor - I also checked the fields alongside the main road between Pellon and Mount Tabor where Nick has had the recent Skylarks in the freshly manured areas. I found c25 Skylark in one area which was giving a bit of shelter from the westerly wind. I checked through them carefully as there is always a chance of something different with them.

Ogden (from PS) - the Barnacle Goose was still there in the morning with 7 Canadas

Ringstone (from SB) - c150 Lapwing and c100 Golden Plover

Skylarks are coming back in good numbers now.
Looking like we,ve had the Pinkies until the autumn now although I had 9
in a field at Leeshaw last year March 3rd.
