Birds of the freezing fog


Freezing fog ensured that any attempt to complete the WeBS count at Pitsford today was abandoned; the freezing fog never did clear all day.

Birds in the garden here at Hanging Houghton included 5 Bramblings, several Fieldfares, Redwing, Yellowhammer and a vociferous Mistle Thrush.  Despite the harsh conditions, Great Spotted Woodpeckers could be heard drumming and Great Tits singing!

Little else of note to report today - 4 Lesser Redpolls at Hanging Houghton sewer works feeding on Rose-bay Willowherb and a hunting Barn Owl at Blueberry Farm being about the best!
