last few days

been very quite here the last few days, the thrushes seemed to have moved on. the main highlight was a peregrine over siddal on wednesday about 200yds from the house.
6 meadow pipits and 1 skylark still around coal pit lane along with 60+ common gulls.
good numbers of redpolls 57 at elland gp on thursday.

ive just finished compiling my yorkshire list....317 not bad
