February 1st 2010

Great-spotted Woodpecker, Sparrowhawk and 2 Fieldfare over the garden this morning then a visit to the pond this afternoon hoping this latest freeze would have brought something in but alas it looks like more is leaving.
Apart from a few more Goosander (9) then in general duck numbers are still low with no trace of the male Smew off draycote bank but the female Common Scoter remains. Two Great-northern Divers were between the valve tower and the centre. Considering the weather we have had this winter then the Kingfisher in grays barn is note worthy in that they are still in the area. Only other birds of note were 8 Bullfinch, 12 Goldfinch, 5 Meadow Pipit, Great-spotted Woodpecker, 2 Green Woodpecker, 2 Song Thrush and another hardy little soul surviving - Goldcrest in toft shallows.
