Pinks are a coming!

Had two local reports of Pink-footed Geese in the Oakenshaw area.  Firstly Vic saw approx 20 on the 25/9 moving over the Chair Bar roundabout heading towards the Halifax area.  Then on the 27 Sept Phil Andrew saw 60+ Pink Footed Geese moving West from the Chain Bar towards Halifax. He also saw a Red Kite 24/9 at 09.06 am which flew West parallel to the A58 over Villa Mount/Wyke Junior Academy.  I however, have not seen any Pink Footed Geese from the watch point, in fact today was very poor however, 7 Rook flew S which is a good count given the Rook is not that common here.

Two Blair’s Shoulder-Knot and 3 Large Yellow Underwing were caught in the moth trap last night
