Wassell Grove Fisheries....12/03/2011

After a cloudy start to the morning the sun eventually broke through the clouds and it felt pleasantly warm in sheltered areas. Birds seen on my walk today were Blue and Great Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Robin, Dunnock, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Blackbird, Bullfinch (x2 male), Starling, Mallard, Canada Geese, Woodpigeon (large flocks), Magpie, Carrion Crow, Buzzard x2, Skylark, GSW drumming, Green Woodpecker heard and a noisy Cockerel heard and seen!

My first sighting of Coltsfoot this year.

EDIT: A flock of 14 Waxwings were perched in a tree four gardens away from my garden!


  1. What a splendid Cockerel Pam,bet he made quite a noise....a nice pic of a Coltsfoot too....I've not noticed any here as yet!

  2. He was rather vocal Ruth! A bit unnerving when you are so!! It was uplifting to see the Coltsfoot, a nice sign of Springs arrival. No doubt you will soon be spotting it in your area.
