Still quiet out there

Cloudy with a few sunny spells, 5°, light SW.

Still rather quiet out there and still very soggy underfoot.

A Little Egret seen across the other side of a field but went down in to a brook before I got the camera on it.

2 Mute Swan on Cholsey Brook in Whitehead Meadow.

Approx. 100 Lapwing and the usual Gulls in the flooded field and good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing around.

A small flock of c20 Yellowhammer around the hill and a couple of Buzzard around and a Tawny Owl heard calling.

There’s an old saying: If there is more than one Crow they are Rooks, if there is only one Rook it’s a Crow.

However today there were 9 Crows together feeding fairly close to each other. Maybe this time of year when food is scarce there is something to be said for numbering up to find food?

  1. I've seen over a hundred crows together on some London greens.
