Cold snap starting to produce birds

The current freeze is certainly shuffling birds around at the moment. Startops had the Snow Bunting, four Dunlin still and a Shelduck and also a male Goosander flew over.

Wilstone had Brent Goose, Water Pipit and Little Egret and a female Goosander flew off from near the jetty into Bucks. Early on the Water Pipit is remaining faithful to the jetty area and allowing good views if approached carefully.

Wilstone, Startops and Marsworth all had open water, but for how long remains to be seen.
