With things to sort out, and little time for actual birding, I'd at least hoped to wake up to the bubbling calls of Curlew, Lapwings in display and Skylarks filling the wide sky canvas with song. No such luck! The moor was covered in snow and a keen northerly wind continued to sweep horizontal sleet across the landscape for most of the day, with the wind increasing in force as the day went on! Filthy weather with Raven and Hooded Crow patrolling the moor providing a similar picture to six or seven weeks ago!
And then we lost the electricity supply around 2100 hours so it was time to call it a day, a poor day!
