Luddenden Dean etc

A Dipper in the stream under the bridge by the 'catty' pub was a decent start this afternoon. Also in the dean 2 Little Owls, 8+ Stock Doves, 1 Kestrel, 2 Buzzards, and lots of Blue, Great and Coal Tits at the feeders near 'The Lowe'.
Thought there might be Bramblings, Chaff's and thrushes coming in to the Castle Carr roost but nothing materialised, unless they all came in late  (?)

Earlier today up to 5 Brambling on the garden feeder at home on and off all morning.

Also via BS (from G and A) c100 Pink-footed Geese over Halifax around 17:30 towards Claremount
From AH - a good number of Pied Wagtails at the Bull Green winter roost late afternoon

Murky on Ringby but enough visibility to see no Pinkies moving up to 1500 hrs . All reports were at last light.
