Managed to add another 10 species (91) over the weekend but the thaw has now set in and the weather has been shocking today - dark, grey and contstant sleet and rain showers. Highlights have been 2 woodcock and 2 water rails feeding outside the office window and 3 spotted redshank yesterday. Spring must be just around the corner as a pair of blue tits have been checking our a nestbox outside the window and the male is starting to hold territory and chase the other tits off.
Merlin and barn owl hunting near Choseley on the way home.
The crab apples did the trick with 15 fieldfares feeding on them yesterday.
