Todays news - so far !

14 Barnacle Geese yesterday at 9;30 ish at Ringstone but left soon after - (per DT)

2 Water Pipits yesterday at Lower Gorple (NCD AC) - unfortunately no sign of them this afternoon though we had a good check along with TL, SB and AvH, and later PD and LD. It was good to have a socially distant chat with everyone. 
We didn't find a lot in the inclement weather but still enjoyed the very fresh air and the amazing scenery.

c30 Mallard 
2 Pied Wagtails
1 Great-spotted Woodpecker
1 Dipper flew upstream at Clough Foot
A few Redwings and Fieldfares and a large flock of Starlings on the move as we arrived.

Also an early warning of 3 skeins of  Pink-footed Geese heading >E at around 11:20 over Hebden Bridge (SD) were picked out at a distance shortly afterwards from Queensbury and estimated at around 300 birds (BS).
