Ringstone Edge etc

A good find yesterday (JB) with 3 Jack Snipe also showing earlier this morning but disappeared into reeds after a short while.
1 Common Snipe, 7 Teal, c350 Golden Plover, 2 Oystercatcher, 2 G C Grebes, 1 Little Grebe.
Not a bad start to the day !

Luddenden - early afternoon. A bit of shelter down there from the freezing cold wind but snow flurries continued in between bright sunshine.
1 Dipper, 1 Grey Wagtail, 1 Pied Wagtail, 1 Moorhen, 1 Chiffchaff along with singing Nuthatches and a Green Woodpecker. 
Surprise find was a flock of 60+ Meadow Pipits together in a freshly manured part of a field along Dean House Lane towards Booth.

A Kittiwake flyover for AC prompted me to check Mixenden reservoir late afternoon in case it had been forced down there in the snow flurries. No luck there but no matter.
1 B h Gull, 2 Grey Wagtails, Pair Tufted Duck and a Ring-necked Parakeet flew overhead as I went down Mixenden Road.
