Freezing February


Well it was so good to get out for a decent walk today.

After days of freezing winds, rain and sleet, it was good to find the morning bright with only a light breeze. Two Buzzards were displaying, a Marsh Harrier flushed 400 Wigeon from the flooded field and the farm fields were full of small birds including a flock of 23 Meadow Pipits.


Good numbers of these bonny thrushes. Some fluffed up because of the chill, but most making easy work of finding  worms on the thawing fields.


Lots of Pink-footed Geese and plenty of more common wildfowl made it a most enjoyable walk.
