The extra day

Cloudy with a few sunny periods, 7°, very little wind SSW.

Pretty quiet again on the hill. The recently ploughed field hosted 28 Pied Wagtail and the south face of the hill had 4 Fieldfare and 21 Starling feeding there but that was about it.

100+ Redwing flew over heading north and a few Fieldfare around the fields to the north and a couple of Yellowhammer.

A Treecreeper in the garden today and giving a few bursts of song, the male Blackcap still feeding up on apples and a Nuthatch, 2 Long-tailed Tit, a Coal Tit, Green Woodpecker, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker and a Sparrowhawk amongst other visitors.

A Tawny Owl flew over the meadow at dusk yesterday.
