Tuesday 7th December

What a sight, Shustoke with everything covered in a Hoar Frost, it was simple breathtaking, as was the cold air. Someone with a poetic bent could certainly have waxed lyrical about this “feast for the eyes.”

Bird wise there were less wildfowl than of late, but there was still a Redshank and a Green Sandpiper. Coot number continue to grow with in excess of 500 (I did count them but they were that closely packed it was difficult to be accurate). Grebe number are now well down on the highs of the summer and autumn.

Passerine were practically non-existant today with a Grey Wagtail and a couple of Meadow Pipits the only birds of note.
