Sunset on the Marsh

Cold and bright, 0°, very light SSW.

Benson recorded the lowest overnight temperature in the UK on Monday night of -9° and the second lowest last night of -6° so it is pretty chilly out there.

A cold late afternoon at Cholsey marsh for the roost. 60+ Corn Bunting in and a similar number of Meadow Pipit.

Lots of Fieldfare and Redwing around and 2 Chiffchaff noted, 1 on the marsh and another over the other side of the river, both with Tit flocks.

A Little Grebe on the river along with several Black-headed Gull and a few Cormorant up and down the river.

3 Water Rail and a couple of Common Snipe on the marsh.

A distant Sparrowhawk observing the roost this evening but flew of east after about 5 minutes.

 A couple of photos by Loren this morning of the 2 Moorhen that visit the garden. Trying to decide whether to come in, then going for it.

The Lime Tree in the meadow in the morning frost.
