a Magpie! My 2nd sighting was a Woodpigeon and 3rd a Black-headed Gull. My first bird heard singing was a Robin in the early hours of the morning.
The weather was ok this morning, cold with a slight wind but it changed considerably early afternoon just as I arrived at Brake Mill Pool to feed the ducks! Cold, cold rain came down so I didn't hang around for too long. I added 16 to my New Years Day list so not all in vain and the ducks etc appreciated the brown bread and a Robin enjoyed seed I had placed on top of a few fence posts. Good to see a few Goosander on the water, I counted 8 males and 3 females, they stay well back on the pool so I rarely manage a decent pic of them not that it is that important.
A few images to start 2016 off with.
