Christmas Day morning


A stunning day's weather out there today although the roads were a little precarious first thing with black ice!

A Lesser Redpoll was calling at Kelmarsh Hall this morning and the fallen apples in the orchard there were being consumed by at least 50 Fieldfare as they slowly change their winter diet with the berries beginning to run out.  The territorial Mistle Thrush couldn't keep them at bay but was making a lot of noise trying his best!

The traditional broadcasting of seed at Harrington Airfield by the concrete track entrance attracted about 8 Bramblings plus plenty of Chaffinches, Yellowhammers etc.

Enjoy your festivities!
