I can't see the original sticky so will start a new thread.  Saw nearly 30,000 knot on Breydon Water yesterday.  Great weekend at Minsmere, Otter, Kingfishers, Bitterns, lots of Marsh Harriers

Had a walk along the Wirral Way seeing quite a few Redwings, a couple of Fieldfares, 2 pairs of Bullfinches, and a Goldcrest. Also a few Goosanders and Red Breasted Mergansers on the Marine Lake at West Kirby and then 3 Marsh Harriers and a Ringtail at Parkgate. Plenty of waders on the estuary as well. Good day's birding.

Climate change Nellie. I've noticed quite a few Sloths as well but they were of the 2 legged variety.smile

3 Peregrines ruined the Hen Reed Bed Murmuration.  The Starlings came in as usual and the Peregrines started attacking and the Starlings dropped like stones into the reeds and it was all over.

Watched it on 3 evenings, the first was the best, no peregrines and lots of Starlings floating around the sky.  I might try another evening if I'm down that way, but I will not put myself out to go there.

Plenty of Waxwings around......LOVELY.

We get a lot of goldfinches on the feeders every day, but recently we've been getting one with a white head and chest.  Apparently it's a genetic disorder.  Found one which was photographed and posted on the RSPB website

"Ours" is white further down than that one, if I can post a photo I will later. It looks really lovely.

Lovely indeed!

Just a couple of reports of waxwings here in East Lancs, but it’s usually later in the winter when they turn up.

Always amazes me that they turn up in the same places every year, usually the exact same trees. Makes it easier to find them!
