Holywell Pond ...............98% frozen


A session at Holywell pond which has or had a small area of free water packed with gulls , and the sight of two Fox one crossing the frozen pond and then skirting around the edge, the feeders not as busy as I have seen in milder times ,good to see a Brambling drop in , large skeins of Geese over heading south a single Pinkfoot over the pond calling , a Woodcock came over from the far side and past the hide, but it was the gulls packed in the small open area so tight it was hard to sort through them, a recent report of an adult Iceland but nothing out of the ordinary for me ,the colour ringed bird 1162 the only ringed bird out the whole flock, by late afternoon the cold had the best of me time to head back
