Littlemoor Park / Raggalds Flood


                     Dense undergrowth, ideal habitat
                                       Down in the wood

A cold dull day with a light E>3 and temperatures down to 3 deg.
Some light snow flurries but very fine and wet. This has got to be a record for Queensbury to get to the end of January with only one snow covering which only lasted overnight.
Raggalds Flood held 2pr Mallard at lunch time whilst Littlemoor park was alive at the Scarlet Heights end with a large tit flock moving around ,this being mainly Great and Blue Tits but at least 12 Coal Tits were counted. The flock held around 40 birds.
Chaffinches were ripe with around 15 birds but no Brambling whilst Green and Goldfinches were flitting across the road to garden feeders.
2 Jays were present and several Blackbirds but no sign of the Treecreeper.
A Gt Spotted Woodpecker was chacking in the grounds of Park House but keeping out of sight.

Lynda was brighter tonight with her oxygen mask removed as well as all her stitches and staples from her leg, neck and stomach but is still in plenty pain. Hopefully the trac pipe will be removed over the weekend so she can try speaking and possibly have a drink.
