Barn Owl, Short-eared Owl and Marsh Harrier started the walk from Druridge to Chevington. (I hadn't seen the Harrier for over a week but glad to see it is still around.)
The Water Rail has been showing well but I still can't manage a good photo. A call from BB alerted me to a Waxwing 0.5 miles from my house. I arrived just as it disappeared, but after a couple of drives along the road eventually allowed me to connect. It was still there today (09/02/2016) but it can disappear into the tall trees to rest and digest its crop full of berries.
This Guillemot looks a bit undernourished but still managed to waddle, swim and dive.
Plenty of feeder action in the garden and Country Park.
A good number of different aged White-fronted Geese at Cresswell.
Finally ... it's almost time for Hayfever Tablets?
