Sunday 18 December

I took a walk over early this morning but there was not a lot to report. There were a lot of winter thrushes around especially Redwing. On the small pool there was a single Teal and there were 150+ Pochard. The Wigeon flock has not returned yet this year, but it was late on last year before they arrived.

The weather was strange this morning with bright sunshine hampering views to the south, whilst a snow shower and heavy grey clouds hampered viewing to the north – you can’t win sometimes.

My feeders at home have been strangely quiet as well with very few birds around.
