I didn't visit the lakes today, instead I walked the Tree Nursery, Pub Field, Migrant Alley and the Greenhouse Grounds, not an awful lot was of note though, just about normal for this time of day at this time of year. More GREEN WOODPECKERS were seen, FIELDFARES and REDWINGS were about in very small numbers, the pair of KESTRELS hunted over the area, as did a SPARROWHAWK and a few wintery bits and pieces flew over, including the likes of LESSER REDPOLL, SISKIN and SKYLARK.
Two LITTLE OWLS were found at roost, one at the Greenhouse copse, the other in a large garden adjacent to Migrant Alley, but neither allowed a photograph today. Two GOLDCREST were again seen at the Greenhouse Grounds but that was about it really for this afternoon.
I still need 8 new species for this months list just to equal the record November tally of 68, achieved in 2010, the most likely of those are Canada Goose, Greylag Goose, Common Gull and Stock Dove, that still leaves a lot to do to set a new November species record! At least there is still half the month to go though :-)
Not much for the camera today despite the nice light, but here's what i did get .........
