Getting Better

Cloudy with sunny spells, 4°, breezy SW.

A walk along Caps Lane looking for Siskin but still no luck, however a fair few Thrushes seen with mainly Fieldfare and Redwing feeding in the paddocks, several Blackbird and a handful of Song Thrush.
A good number of finches, mainly Chaffinch and several Greenfinch, Goldfinch and a couple of Bullfinch.

Later a walk out to the Lees and the Stonechat still present along the dyke and very active in the windy conditions. Not a lot else out there other than a flock of around 100 gulls (Black-headed and Lesser Blackback) and 40+ Corvids.
The resident Carrion Crows kept chasing off a scarce bird for the garden today in the form of a Rook, chancing its arm (wing) and on several occasions. Even though there is a rookery at the edge of the garden, it is very rare for a Rook to actually alight in the garden.

The 2 Blackcap still regular in the garden.
