This morning, low cloud and drizzle made for a very murky, dull and damp patch visit, as the day went on conditions deteriorated further, with visibility down to 100 meters.
My early morning visit to the lakes was at least rewarded with the sighting of 4 GOOSANDER on the main lake, 2 males and 2 females, also there was a CORMORANT with them.
The adjacent Scrubby Woods had water cascading of the trees, making for a very unpleasant walk through it, very little was noted, a few GOLDCRESTS and BULLFINCHES, a TREECREEPER and a COAL TIT were the best of it.
I was pretty dire out on the farmland, the 250-300 STARLINGS and 60-70 ROOKS were out on the sheep pasture at Migrant Alley and 8 BLACK HEADED GULLS were on one of the paddocks. Not a single flyover was recorded today, not surprisingly though, as the mist and drizzle made for very limited visibility.............. where's the winter weather this year ?
