Oxenhope... dogfight! 13-08-2010

Dogfight at Dusk!!!... six images (c) 2010
NNW F4, 12degC, 65km, 8/8 light rain, QNH 1019 rising all day.
1930 - 2100hr

An intermittantly very wet day with periods of very heavy rain from the north... everything saturated with water running everywhere. Few birds anywhere but three Ravens going high south sparing as they went were very different!... no doubt a product of the rain... otherwise just lessers and blackheads in the sky. A total of 21 Goosanders came into roost the best of the season so far.
Moving birds:
LBB Gull 96
BH Gull 21
Raven 3
Goosander 21
