At 2:55pm today, at 62 Baker Road, North Sutton, I photographed a pair of Red Crossbills.
The several dozen House Sparrows that fed at my feeders in Bradford all summer, have been replaced by flocks of about 30 Chipping Sparrows. I don't think of House Sparrows as migratory, but am stumped about where they have disappeared to. Also, several dozen Goldfinches have also disappeared in the last week. I probably can safely attribute that to migration.
