Todays heavy ,overcast conditions and frequent rain brought for a good few hours birding at Ladywood Lake in Mirfield trhis afternoon.4 Common Terns dropped in to feed briefly at around 16:00 hours followed a few minutes later by 2 Black terns.There was also a steady flow of Hirrundines mainly Swallows passing through the same site mainly in parties of around 20 or 30 birds.Such weather conditions are uncommon but are rewarding if one can be at the right place at the right time.

These records coincide with interesting records from Wintersett today were both Arctic and Pomarine Skua were recordedc today.
