More 'pinks' today

Movement of Pink-footed Geese continued throughout the day with around 10 or more skeins and 900+  birds over west and central Calderdale - mostly, but not all, >NW. It started off for me with calls from AC and Dave Br with news of 'pinks' heading my way over from Northowram and Claremount. Spot on - 2 skeins right over the house. Brilliant to see and hear though a smaller skein of 30 mid afternoon went over very quietly.

105 (if I can count) and 30 

In addition to the the above - other skeins were noted today over Soil Hill, Skircoat, Brighouse, Norland, Ogden (and Leeshaw near Oxenhope) - see BS's West Yorkshire Birding blog and JJL's Bradshaw Birding.

Also a single Whooper Swan over Soil Hill first thing and 40 over Northowram this morning.
