WHAT? 98 ALL OUT?!!
Up to 11 Wood Pigeons were in the garden
As the road conditions were too icy and too dangerous to drive, I thought it be wise to stay in. A quick look
at the garden, now and then, produced some good birds. The highlights included, a Pied Wagtail, 2 Redwings and 1 Fieldfare, all these birds were in the garden throughout the day and now there is up to 12 Goldfinches! Also the white winged Jackdaw made a brief vsit with a white winged Starling.
Only 3 Blackbirds were present at one time. This bird kept on pushing the other thrushes awaay.
FROM THE ARCHIVES
December last year, Joe Pender found a 1st winter SABINE'S GULL in Old Town Bay. This was a Scilly tick for me and the bird stuck around for quite a while, commuting with Porthloo. This footage was taken at the latter site.
