When I peeped out from the bathroom window on Wednesday morning,there to greet me was a siskin on the feeders,they are fairly regular in March,when migrating back to whence they came,but not usually singly,there was also a single goldfinch on the niger seed,the first for a while.
Will the glaucous gull grow a new rudder? will it be able to return to its homeland without it?I wonder.
Got well and truly hypo thermiarised sitting in the Hanson hide waiting for the penduline tit to show up ,sounds like a new perversion to me,but it didn`t,however a largish flock of reed buntings had arrived and proceeded to tear the reed mace to shreds,but they had nothing on a pair of great tits in the reed mace stripping stakes.
Beware of sitting in cold draughty hides in March,when the temperature does not go above 5c and a north easter is blowing in your face,always take a flask....
The weekend weather forecast sounds quite promising,so lets hope its correct.
