A gorgeous day after the snow of yesterday - just a shame so many people were put off from turning up by yesterday's weather! The morning highlight was the dogfight between the female Sparrowhawk & the Carrion Crow, which continued off & on for at least half-an-hour; whilst in the afternoon the Treecreeper within touching distance was probably the best sight. We also had excellent views of a Goldcrest (am), Stock Dove (both), Redwing (pm), and most of the common birds mentioned on previous posts from this venue. We had incredibly close views of Turnstones in the afternoon, so if Richard sends his pics, I will add them to this post. Let's hope that's the last of the snow this winter!
