Tuesday 30th November

Managed a couple of hours this afternoon and the cold snap produced the goods with another year tick for me in the form of a Green Sandpiper. There were some notable counts today with 97 Shoveler, c.60 Pochard, 53 Wigeon, 14 Goosander and 12 Teal. The only passerines of note were Meadow Pipit and Fieldfare.

I also have roosting Tawny Owl which I have seen on a couple of occasions but they are near impossible to see during the day in the dense conifers.
