Mainly the golf course this afternoon - no golf though !!!
Didn't find much but 2 buzzard sightings were welcome (could have been the same bird) firstly over Hunter Hill towards Cold Edge then probably the same bird over the plantation heading towards Thornton Moor
Also 2 Ravens distant. Plenty of Carrion Crows about as I suspect there will be some dead sheep on the moor after this recent cold blast and snow from the east
1 Sparrowhawk through the plantation at Ogden Res'r, 1 Curlew heard calling and 1 Lapwing over >E with 3 more Lapwings on Syke Lane fields
Pair of Goosander on Ogden and on Mixenden c25 Canada's and a Cormorant.
 Lower end of the golf course looking >WNW towards 'The Withens'
 Top end of golf course looking >SE towards Halifax
An interesting snowdrift along Rocks Lane

Surprising how little snow there is on the fields and moor with the wind pushing it all against the walls. An interesting session there for you.
