Didn't fancy getting out today with the bad weather
until I heard honking swans and looked out of the
window and seen 4 Whoopers flying over, so with
my spirit brightened decided to have a walk around
my local area until the football on the tele started, first
birds were 5 Blackbirds on Claremount Hill also known
as Pepper Hill then up onto the track to scour the farm
fields which were full of Gulls, Crows, Jackdaws & Rooks,
further on were Robins, 2 Goldfinch, 2 Goldcrest and 3
Grey Partridge and a Pied Wagtail with which I
had to seek the expert knowledge of Brian S. and Dave S.
as I thought it might be a Yellow Wagtail with it having a
yellowish face, but it seems it's a winter plumage on a few.
Then back to the house to watch my team get beat 2-0.
1 Wren was also seen and a report of 2 Stonechats from BS
at Soil Hill.
