Well despite being out for much of the day, we really struggled to find anything today in very cold grey conditions.
Four Red Kites in and around Hanging Houghton today is probably as many we have ever seen here - it would be great if they remained in to the breeding season. A male Brambling with it's wonderful rasping song defied the conditions at the Old Scaldwell Road feeding station at Pitsford Res, and several Siskins remained around the feeders at Kelmarsh Hall this morning. Four Reed Buntings remain in the garden and Siskins were around the village in small numbers.
