A very slippery walk in icy conditions this morning yielded the following.
1 Little Egret in the bushes on Drayton Bank, 1 Red Kite over meadow at back of hide. Also five GREY PARTRIDGE flew away from the hedge by the track through Miswell Farm, landed, and disappeared into the hedge on the other side of the field.
Also saw one male and one female BRAMBLING in the garden today with the flock of Chaffinches - these are the first I have seen since this period of snowfall commenced. Also a Pied Wagtail briefly landed on the bird table before flying off - I sometimes get them by the pond, but never on the bird table before (Roy Hargreaves)
