A very quiet period for birding locally at the moment with very little movement going on, so a walk along the Bunk line with Loren today was somewhat subdued.
Having said that there was still birds to look at etc.
At the gravel workings they are pumping water from the new digs out into the field. Creating a flooded area that had attracted around 60 Gulls, mainly Lesser Blackback Gull and a handful of Black-headed Gull, .all using it for a wash and brush-up!
The usual flocks of Starling, Fieldfare and Redwing noted along with a couple of small flocks of Pied Wagtail.
A Green Woodpecker and a “drumming” Great-spotted Woodpecker and a Jay calling, the odd Meadow Pipit and Yellowhammer and 2 Mistle Thrush around the church.
Alan out today with, a Kestrel, Winter Thrushes, Song and Mistle Thrush, Blackcap, Black-headed, Lesser Blackback and Herring Gull.
Nice to see some Snowdrops coming thru!
