Just an hour was had out on my patch this afternoon, much of that was spent in 'dusk like' conditions, and so not much was recorded. As usual the MALLARD and MOORHEN were on the lake, but so was a KINGFISHER, that brightened the afternoon up a bit! A few of the common woodland species were heard or seen - COAL TIT, LONG TAILED TIT, GOLDCREST and NUTHATCH being the best of those.
3 GREEN WOODPECKERS were feeding on a large lawn, next to the Small Holding, and flyovers from SISKIN, FIELDFARE and REDWING were all there was to get excited about this afternoon. By 15:00hrs I was back home, and needed to turn the lights on to make a cup of tea!
Oh well, these are the challenges that need to be met at this time of year. At least I have been able to finish my Butterfly page off, click on the page at the top right of the side bar or here to see it. If these gloomy cloudy days keep up i'll have to do a dragon and damselfly page !
EDIT at 16:33: Just heard a LITTLE OWL (65) calling from the large gardens around my house, something for the months list at last :-)
