Hoarfrost

Hi

Cold but spectacular weather today with some amazing hoarfrost dazzling in the winter sunshine.

Birds were minimal today with singles of Brambling at Hanging Houghton, Harrington Airfield and Pitsford Res.  The drake Scaup was visible from the dam at Pitsford Res late morning.

A good walk around Blueberry Farm, Maidwell was eerily quiet this afternoon.  The only birds of note were singles of Woodcock and Willow Tit and unfortunately the Hen Harrier from two days ago failed to reappear.
