Mixenden and Moor End

Great Crested Grebe on Mixenden this morning along with a Goldeneye.

Moor End
I was trying to count Meadow Pipits when a Sparrowhawk went through low and 50+ Meadow Pipits lifted. I felt it worth scanning for possible larks but the snow came down thick and fast and curtailed detailed scanning.
The snow brought down c180 Redwings and 2 Fieldfare - they were really close to the road though I left before it got worse as the road was getting covered in snow. ! Another climate up there but not as bad as Soil Hill !!
