More Pinks on the move

Noticed 10 herring Gulls going north at 3.10  so had an hour to spare so headed to the field with the dog in tow..A few Stock dove flushed from the dilapidated barn and 4 Fieldfare headed north.I could hear Pinks but could not see um , about 2 mins later I picked um up over Hx town center(aprox) there were 165 due west.about 100 Redwing headed northLoads of BHgulls were going south.A flock of 100+Pinks soon followed and then a massive skein way to the south of aprox 250....At 6.15 in total darkness another 100 or so went right over the house sending the dog crazy...Pink heaven again.....

Seems I went down south too early, I was almost home by the time you had your first sighting of what turned out to be a winning session

I was gonna go up the hill today but had to call it off cos my little lad was ill and had to go to docs..Lucky i would have been asleep and missed all the pinks if I had made it to the top of soil hell and back,,,
