December 7th 2010

It’s been another day of freezing fog with the temperature not rising above -2c all day and plummeting to -6c while doing the roost tonight at Draycote Water. I managed to locate the first winter Iceland Gull in a very large roost but eventually gave in to the cold and scuttled off home. Other birds noted were the male Smew commuting between pontoons and the valve tower, at least 87 Goosander at dusk, Grey Wagtail, 11 Siskin, 2 male Brambling and Little Owl.
Unfortunately more freezing fog is forecasted for around here tonight.
