19th December

Much the same as yesterday with perhaps a harder frost through the night so I thought I would go back to Holywell Pond for an hour or two as there is always tommorrow to go Christmas shopping.A lot brighter than yesterday but not much on the pond a Goosander in front of the hide and a Sparrowhawk over with the usual suspects at the feeders,but at around 1pm gulls just descended onto the pond in a huge stream like you see when Starlings go down to roost there was well over a thousand mostly Black-headed,I could find no meds in amongst them,a mixed flock of Yellowhammers & Reed Buntings along the track but the highlight of the day was a Stoat in full ermine not seen one for many years.
