Slowly the nights are drawing out allowing the odd bit of post work birding. I likes that!! I had about an hour before it was too dark so a very quick look on the pool, which was frozen, produced nothing so I concentrated on the lanes. Birds noted were Magpie, Woodpigeon, Carrion Crow, about 400 Lapwing, 40-50 Mallard which were seen in flight over the far side of the quarry/river, upset by shooters, a massive 392 Mute Swan, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Black Headed Gull, Blackbird, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Fieldfare, Tree Sparrow, Dunnock, Robin, Yellowhammer, a single Grey Heron, 2 Little Owl, 131 Jackdaw seen flying to roost fron the pig farm, 2 Pied Wagtail, Pheasant, Starling, a single Golden Plover, and Wren.
Work again tomorrow then a fishing match on Sunday so no more birding this weekend unless I can get to Whitemoor Haye after work tomorrow although the forecast is snow. If that comes true I might watch England v Scotland.
