Cold weather birds

Hi

Birds at Sywell CP (which was mostly frozen) this morning included a Black-necked Grebe, 2 'redhead' Smew and c15 redpoll sp.

Later this morning Pitsford Res attracted the Great White Egret still and 2 Little Egrets, these birds again on the flood water at the back of the Holcot Bay.  The old Scaldwell Road feeding station attracted 4 Bramblings on the seed.  Much of the reserve section was frozen and 6 Smew (4 drakes) and 2 Goosanders were flying around at 3pm as visible from the causeway.

Regards

Eleanor
