Cold again!

Sunny, 1º, light NE, felt colder!

More Reed Bunting than Corn Bunting at the roost this evening so it looks as though the CB roost is breaking up for the spring. Twenty plus Reed and fourteen Corn Bunting, however this may change if the weather stays cold for a time!.
The Barn Owl put in an appearance and there are still good numbers of Teal and Common Snipe on the marsh. A few Fieldfare and Redwing around, a Song Thrush singing at dusk and the usual squealing from the Water Rails, a Little Grebe also heard and a Grey Heron over. Green Woodpecker, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Kestrel, Buzzard and Red Kite also present.

A pair of Mallard back visiting the garden, usually early morning and evening, a Pheasant, two Stock Dove, two Blackcap, a Great-spotted Woodpecker still visiting, also a Moorhen in the garden today with all the usual visitors and a Green Woodpecker and two Coal Tit seen and heard in the meadow.

Barn Owl, always distant!

Moorhen in the garden, took a liking to apple.
The moon is very photogenic at the moment!
