Nocturnals January 2013
After a frantic first three weeks in December 2012, night skies this year suddenly just like the grave with just the odd thrush, a Golden Plover and a few Jackdaws during the evenings up to c 2300hr.... (overnight periods still to analyse). Tonight whilst walking down for the shopping a couple of very noisy Pink-footed Goose skeins 5 minutes either side of 1900hr on almost the same track directly NW well up in open starlit skies.... inversion fogs starting to form below. Downside at this time of year in addition to dearth, being the onset of the dawn chorus, for more than a week now interference from distant robin song starting variably between 0230 and 0330 will be making auto analysis impossible, but perhaps not missing much anyway yet!
Woodcock overhead Wilsden, edge of dark, unusual just here. Perhaps moving on (DCB)
