A dull, dry and windy morning but it was good to be out walking this morning. I had hoped for sightings of a few Fieldfare or Redwings and/or a few Waxwings but to no avail. The trees and hedgerows are chocca with berries so if the numerous Blackbirds and Tits leave a few berries then I may be in luck sometime soon! I shall try and make fairly regular checks on this area. Goldcrest, Long-tailed Tit, Robin, Dunnock, Wren, Chaffinch, Jay and plenty of Corvids were sighted on the walk. A Green Woodpecker was heard only and quite surprisingly not one Starling was seen.
I happened upon a leucistic Blackbird which was preening as it perched in a hedgerow. I have never seen one with so much leucism before. House Sparrows were in the muddy pools along the pathway bathing and drinking.
