During the breeding season no rare or scarce breeding birds will be mentioned on the blog as well as images if in any way I believe it to put the species in jeopardy of breeding or assist anyone to the finding of a nest sight.
No wildlife including Roe Deer, Fox, Hare or Badger will be mentioned throughout the year due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.
Fly over birds and movers will be reported as usual.

A snowy Ogden


                                   Several Lt Tit flocks
                                   This Mink didnt mind the cold water

                                  The poser Robin

A bright crisp morning with a good covering of snow and a cool N>4 which dropped to calm by 0830hrs.
About 30% of the reservoir was frozen and just held the usual Mallards and small gulls.
Tit flocks were lively with mostly Long Tailed but only 2 Goldcrests were spotted, a very poor year for them this time.
A first for me was a Mink below the bridge in and out of the water.

Mallard....................108
BH gull....................35
Common gull............16
LT tit.........................c 40
Goldcrest..................2
Mink.........................1
+ usual sp.
