Happy new year!!

First visit for aaggges. Nice to see Tom up there again although I wasn't expecting to see any one else in the River pool hide !

Anyway, all the pools were frozen so we spent most time in the field hide and the best of the day were two snipes coming in to land. GSW was heard in the woods and the rest were the usual suspects on the carpark feeders and field fare in the field.
