In the last two nights, the 4th winter Caspian Gull has been roosting at nearby Trench Pool
The 4th winter Caspian Gull is still present at Hortonwood for it's forth day and not surprising, I relocated it roosting across the road at Trench Pool for the last two nights with over 2000 Black-headed Gull, 12 Goosander and the adult HerringxLBBG.
While just a five minute walk from Trench Pool in Trench itself, a Marsh Tit was a total surprise as it was a first for the garden! No doubt brought in with the harsh conditions. Other birds visiting the garden for the same reason were Redwing, Fieldfare, 15+Long-tailed Tit and only the forth record of Goldcrest!

3 Buzzard together flew over the heads of the gulls resting on the roofs and put them all up
Only a handful of Herring Gull were also at Hortonwood
While there have been up to 250 Lesser-black backed Gull
Over 2000 Black-headed Gull are roosting at Trench Pool. These were all taken just across the road at Middle Pool

Some 15+Long-tailed Tit moved through the garden with a rare sighting of a single Goldcrest

I think I play of Mark Lanegan on my blog than any other artist!
