Yesterday morning 12th October

 Rain and mist today on the tops with  a good strong breeze - not all that good for 'birding' but the Sainsbury's shop this morning produced a Grey Heron low over the store and a Jay flyover though I failed to find the Dipper in the stream at Dean Clough.

Got home to find 2 decent flocks of Redwings heading >W around 08:40- battling through the blustery conditions - estimate c130 and c60 (later in the day a flock of c25 >W over Pellon)

Fly Flatts late morning failed to produce a single bird (BS managed a Jack Snipe earlier - see West Yorkshire Birding). 5 Stonechats were braving it out on the walls at Withens Head.
