Wild and Wet

Looks like we,re back to the gales and rain for the weekend again after a deteriorating day today. All the cars at work this morning were entombed in ice and then we had a short snow shower quickly turning to rain. On the bright side its only 19 days to the shortest day and once we get christmas and new year out of the way we,re heading in the right direction.
Gulls were on the move today with several LBBs heading >NW and at least 3 Herring gulls went over >W, gulls are the only birds that dont seem to mind the winds and look to enjoy tacking into the wind.
A Green Woodpecker was a rare sight over Foxhill at midday dropping down towards the old station whilst a charm of about 12 Goldfinch were feeding on weeds behind the Pineberry Inn.
Check those supermarket Rowans this weekend for Waxwings and sift through any numbers of Greylags, there seems to be an influx of White Fronteds around the area.
