The cold spell continues



An icy cold day with a strong northerly wind but very little in the way of snow fortunately but undoubtably our turn will come.
Three seperate Herons were seen today no doubt trying to find unfrozen water, and Redwing numbers in the area had increased.
A single Pied Wagtail was in Foxhill Park at lunch time and snow showers could be seen moving across the horizon to the east.
A customer rang me today from Wilsden to say he had just seen a Fieldfare in his garden , was this one of the first early arrivals?
I politely told him he was just over a month and 10,000 birds too late to record it as a first one!
Just heard today from Sue Cunningham that Phil (ex BOG, now Flamborough,) had just found himself a Great Grey Shrike over there yesterday, perhaps it was HCs bird from Oxenhope? That means Phil will yet again be appearing in Yorkshire Birding, I think they should rename it to Phil Cunningham Birding, we certainly miss him over here.
