Well I don't think it ever did become properly light today! Oh well a day of chores!
Birds were few and far between today, the best being a solitary Waxwing in flight at 10.15am on the west side of the Walgrave Bay at Pitsford Res.
A smart male Brambling was feeding in our garden at Hanging Houghton today and there were at least two more at the main feeding station at Pitsford.
Another Brambling and a Siskin and a Grey Wagtail were in the grounds of the yacht club at Pitsford and this afternoon there was a Barn Owl and a Grey Wagtail in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.
