The Lakes were visited, where the COOT pair remain, plus 5 pairs of MALLARD, but I didn't see any Moorhens today - unusually. There still isn't much at all around the Wet Woods, it was silent in there today but for a calling GREAT TIT, and over at the Tree Nursery just two SONGTHRUSH, a MEADOW PIPIT, a DUNNOCK and a GREEN WOODPECKER were seen.
I spent some time over at the Greenhouse Grounds and heard a LITTLE OWL repeatedly call from an adjacent large Garden, a few BLACKBIRDS, WRENS, ROBINS, and more Dunnocks, showed up, and just 2 SISKIN were in the Alders. A scan across the Sheep pasture at Migrant Alley was made, where 33 BLACK HEADED GULLS were feeding, plus 75-100 ROOKS, the only winter thrush seen was the carcass of a recently predated FIELDFARE, no wonder there were none around here today!
I watched a BUZZARD drift over, but decided to call it a day after only a little under two hours out, the rest of the afternoon was spent photographing the Garden Birds again, which turned out to be fun :-).
I wasn't happy with yesterdays LONG TAILED TIT efforts, but these were slightly better :-
