Thruscross 05-04-2009

J Blacker, A Hanby and 'Glen'

0800-1145 Wind WSW F3-4 mild 2/8 cloud max

Sand Martin 14N
Swallow 1W

Redpoll 29N- 1 flock; a second flock of 45 later on 'u-turned'.

Siskin 10N

Goldfinch 9N

Alba Wag 1 N

Jackdaw 33N


Meadow Pipit 120N

Im getting to think that Thruscross is best on a Northerley- as one would expect but that Scar House res (which is more of a hike unfortunately), is the place to go on more Westerly winds- as you might expect.


SWALLOWS 05-04-2009

Hey up lads,

Just for the record, two Swallows passed over my house at 19.05 hrs this evening, heading SE.

Also circa 70 Golden Plover near Penistone Hill same time.
