A Site Rarity

Treecreeper - bands on wings really obvious here
Treecreeper - blood rushing to its head
Moving Round
Back to an Upright Position
The morning group & some of the afternoon group had good views of a Treecreeper - I've never seen one previously at this location, and looking at the 2010 site list, it was only seen in one month there last year! We had a partial-Ermine Stoat chasing Rabbits - the furthest south in Yorkshire I've heard of an Ermine Stoat this winter. The morning group first heard the yaffle of a Green Woodpecker, but then we also tracked it down! Also seen today were large flocks of Siskins, a pair of Bullfinches (am), a pair of Great Spotted Woodpeckers (pm), Redwings, Fieldfare, Shoveler, Shelduck, Gadwall, Redshank & the young Mute Swans, which were released last week.
