Friday the 6th and I thought I would cycle to Holywell via the tracks in the hope of some Yellowhammers etc:, but alas no flocks of yellowhammers feeding around the farms or feed troughs in fact all I had was a Jack Snipe flushed as I had to make a detour due to the ankle deep mud, Holywell was mostly frozen in this case nearer the hide plenty of gulls around a high percentage Black headed, nothing unusual in with them usual birds at the feeders and a Water Rail dodged behind every bit of cover as it went in front of the hide , not a bad afternoon weather wise anyway.

I only had my bins so I suppose I could have missed something down at the far end









The very skulking water Rail

Hides are the only place you are going to get a photo of any ,but they are not easy.
