Oxenhope.... roosts return! 22-01-2011

AM Gloom.... (c) 2011

On the Clear with overnight ice still present!! (c) 2010

Visibility initially but soon closing down from the west.

Very few birds seen, still virtually nothing on the deck and even less in the sky!


Visibility now cleared and active roosts returned now returned... must have happened sometime last week during the open sky ideallic weather. Despite the roost remaining, many gulls were going straight through or leaving north suggesting active relocation....
