Went down to top up the feeders. Thank you to all who are contributing this year, no food is provided by the trust so any help from visitors ensures that supplies are maintained.

At the feeding station, jay, nuthatch, chaffinch, dunock, robin, GSW, blackbird, pheasant, blue, great, coal and willow tit. A water rail ran through the back of the feeding station.

Walked up the road to the river and saw 2 buzzard, snipe, lapwing, bullfinch, gadwall, mallard, teal, widgeon, moorhen and all the little grebes which have moved from the frozen water in the reserves.
