Swales Moor - Ringby Lane

After a call last night from Dave B about a large noisy flock of geese over Claremount in the dark at around 21:55 I thought it might be  a good day for some more 'pinkies'. Headed up to Swales but not a sign of any movement today - the gloom must have put paid to that !
Halifax from Ringby Lane
On the top I tracked down the Linnet flock - around 22 of them, very flighty but still nice to get local Linnets in December.
1 Skylark
18+ Meadow Pipits
2 Greenfinch
1 Great-spotted Woodpecker
1 Grey Wagtail flyover
9 Stock Doves
1 Redwing
Usual corvid flock of up to 100 birds - mainly Carrion Crows and Jackdaws with a few Rooks and Magpies in among.

Right day, wrong time for the Pinkies Dave. The joys of birding.
