23-1-09 Friday ........a slow day

Friday and I could not get out before about 1pm , so I only went to Linton Pond , but not much to see again the surrounding fields are holding huge amounts of water and nice open areas for gulls to lounge around , passed easy a thousand just by the roundabout, walked to the west hide about 50+ Redwings and a few Fieldfare, a Fox on the far side but not much in the way of gulls, time for a run further north I think, called at QE11 on the way back most birds are at the South end , with the Swans hanging around the carpark , I always look for a Med Gull here but so far not had any or any of the other looked for gulls,got home early another slow day

See that, Waxwing is now relegated to a slot between Rock Pipit and Kittiwake!

Your far too observant, the list is not complete, just adding on the end as I see them, and thats slowing down.............did get a nice Ermine Stoat though boosted my mammal list :) reward for sitting for a couple of hours at Hauxley, and that in itself is some feat !!!!!
