Cloudy Soil Hill & Fly Flatts

                  Went up to Soil Hill late morning to try and
                  see the Snow Bunting again but no sign of it,
                  but other birds were there 20+ Meadow Pipits,
                  Skylarks, 2 Curlew, 6 Lapwing, 1 Pheasant,
                  1 Fieldfare and 1 what looked like a Golden Plover
                  flypast.
                  Left there to go to Ogden Water but changed my mind
                  at last minute and went up to the road at Fly Flatts where
                  it was Cold and windy, 2 Golden Plover flyovers,
                  4 Curlew, 20+ Canada Geese, 3 Mallard, 1 Red Grouse
                  and a flock of what looked like Redwing over a field
                  opposite the Travellers Rest Inn not certain because i
                  was driving at the time.
                  In the garden I had 10 Goldfinch, 4 Greenfinch, 4 Chaffinch,
                  2 Collared Dove, 2 Blue Tits, 2 Dunnock, 2 Blackbird and
                  best bit of the day was a Short-Eared Owl in the back field
                  looking at me but flew off towards Shibden before I could
                 get my camera.
