The highlights this morning were much the same as yesterday, the LITTLE GREBE was seen briefly, before doing its vanishing act, and the COOT remains into its twelfth day, the only other lake dwellers today were half a dozen MALLARD and 4 MOORHEN.
Early on in the walk, I heard the sound of approaching geese, which turned out to be CANADA GEESE, two flew over, then a few seconds later the paired couple, BARNACLE and Canada goose followed. Not much in the way of 'winter' species were noted this morning, just a small gathering of SISKIN along the College stream.
The mixed feeding flock of LONG TAILED, BLUE, and GREAT TITS again roamed the Wet Woods, with two GOLDCRESTS and two TREECREEPERS, I hung about for some time watching the tree tops for a possible Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, but it wasn't to be, I think it will be a long time before I record one of these again, to think they used to breed here :-(
So the weekend visits end without any additions to the Monthly / year list, and with just two more full patch walks to go this month, it looks like the record January species total of 68 total will be safe.
This afternoon, the cloud broke occasionally, allowing for some mixed fortunes with the camera at my garden feeders. I'll put a few shots up, and save the rest for tomorrows post :-) The first two species were additions to this mornings list :-)
