Patchwork Challenge - an update from Weybread, 24 January 2013

I ventured out to Weybread GPs this morning for the first time since the snow landed last week. It was pretty hard work but I did manage to winkle out 8 new species for the list:

Pochard (8)
Bullfinch (1 male)
Marsh Tit (1)
Goldcrest (2)
Fieldfare (c12)
Kestrel (1)
Grey Wagtail (1)
Sparrowhawk (1 fem)

In addition, our single wintering Little Egret was still about (but refusing to let me get very close with my camera!), at least 4 Kingfishers and a small cold weather influx of 14 Wigeon and c40 Great Cormorants onto the main pit.

I think it's going to be a long hard winter trying to find much more so roll on the spring!
