Oxenhope, Bradford (W Yorks, England)
Tuesday 6 November 2012
Counting period: 7:30 - 15:10
Weather: Observers: Dave Barker

Moving Birds;
Fieldfare 34 -
Turdus sp. - 543
Redwing 1 -

Totals: 578 individuals, 3 species, 7:40 hours

Comments: Little during the first couple of hours in better weather. More and complete report later but thrushes NNW first noted mid morning only after it had started raining. Several flocks initially in short succession all very low crawling tightly over the moor. Those seen going over top dropping into the cloughs below with some into the wood. Then a long gap with worsening weather but with a few more mid pm. Mainly Fieldfare. Otherwise next to nothing and again, only the high watchpoint working.
