Lots of Pink feet moving through Calderdale today, so went up Roils Head and had two flocks go over, one of 200 - 300 birds and another of 104+ birds (for some reason I can not post pictures on the blog today,, blog problem?). Also lots of finches at Roils Head, mainly Gold Green and Chaffinches, also had first Kestrel of the year and bumped into Muxy and family.

Year started off not bad with a small movement of large gulls passing west over Roils Head, 12 Herring and 3 Great Black backs. Message came through from DJS of a skien of pinkies heading my way and after a brief wait I managed to pick up 67 struggling to move slowly north west. First Sparrowhawk of the year was dashing about at Heath Hill Road and a Meadow Pipit was sheltering at Tower Hill.
