With rain all day turning to snow this evening and a cold northerly wind, today was probably the most miserable weather of the winter to date. The birds seemed under the weather too with little in the way of sightings today.
A Woodcock was flushed at Sunderland Wood (Kelmarsh Estate) this morning and at least 2 Bramblings were at Harrington Airfield. Calling finches at Kelmarsh Hall included a singing Siskin, redpoll sp and Brambling. Three Lesser Redpolls remained at Hanging Houghton.
