Stilll no Bittern

Wednesday 13th January
A brief stop at Woodbury produced the hoped for Brambling including a few cracking males in with the chaffinches, probably 5+ in total, though at least 20+ were present earlier in the day. I also managed to sneak in a late visit to the Otter this afternoon hoping for a roosting Bittern, but still no joy. However, a Mink was a nice surprise from the bridge as it swam down river and 2 Coot were a good patch tick!
The Fieldfare is still hogging the apples in the front garden!


  1. Fame on 'Snow Watch' Chris! Pity they didn't realise the Water Rail had killed it too!

  2. Howdo Mr T

    I like that jack snipe pic, what camera do you use ?

  3. Jaff, turned over at half-time to see Packham stringing your Mipit for Pied Wagtail, helluva lot more entertaining than watching Liverpool. You should add an "as seen on TV" subtitle to the blog.

  4. Yeah, this is all really really interesting stuff Jaff, but may I ask where the hell all the bloody cakes have gone? And I've yet to see a cream tea on here! Sort it out!!!
