2 degrees of coolness, in Bradshaw, this morning with a strong NNE wind saw me abandon a visit to Soil Hill in favour of Coach Road.
10:40 - 12:20 - Coach Road, Lightcliffe.
2 overcoats warmer and sheltered to some degree here.
I was hoping for good numbers of Winter Thrushes or maybe a Brambling.
Thrushes were hard to come by and no Brambling were seen.
3 Jay, Mistle Thrush, 1 Geat Spotted Woodpecker, 2 Nuthatch.
Good numbers of Long Tailed Tit flitting through the trees all the way down Coach Road bridleway.
6 Redwing, high in the dark tree canopy, and a few other sp.
I don't mention my Little Pecker any more.
After lunch I took the car up to Soil Hill to search for Snow Bunt.
A Sparrowhawk was seen from the car - probably the same bird as this morning.
I just did a quick circuit of the hill and Ned Hill Track in a bitterly cold N wind.
A few Gulls and a large flock c200 Starling about.
Not a lot happening - no Snow Bunt.
