Calderdale Purple patch

Well with 2 Great Northern Divers,lapland Bunting and Ducks and Raptors it a real good time for local birders(pity I missed um all).Anyway today I looked out the window and noticed 5 white birds flying south they had to be small geese/snow???!!!!!then they flew west showing them to be short necked YBSwans.I have had loads of Whoopers over the house so texted them out as Whoopers,only to realise as I sent the text that they were far too small and flighty and could only have been Bewick's.Dohhhh,1 Sparrowhawk,55 Lapwing 30+ Common Gulls and 20 Fieldfare.
