7th and 8th March

 7th March

Spent holy in the garden watching the now 15+ Lesser Redpolls with at least 2 Common Redpolls. First set of pics. They were very confusing with some intermediate Redpolls, sort of ones on the edge of Common and Lesser. 

Intermediate below as this was small.

Lesser Redpoll

Male and Female Siskin visited the feeders for the first time. and it was also nice to get Make and Fe,ale Great Spotted Woodpecker too. Female Blackcap an unringed individual today.  

8th March

Back on patch and one of the best days in a long time. Walker Clockwise today, usually anti clockwise which proved a very good move. The Staverton Pools Great White egret paid a visit to Hollelsy today. Then i found a Little Ringed Plover on winter flood, a patch tick, a few Common Scoter on the sea a single White wagtail on winter flood and then back to the hide where 2 Spoonbill dropped in and showed really nicely. I scoped the little owl from the screen and Tawny Owl was calling and then i got to my Little owl tree and it was sat out showing nicely. A Great day for pictures. Felt very lucky.


Single Whitefront still

Little Owl, Spoonbill and the White Wagtail.

Finally 2 Caspian Gulls, Ringed Herring Gull and this Brute of a Northern Herring Gull.

Great Finish to the weekend.
