Holywell Pond 4-12-10

Saturday the 4th took myself and the flask to Holywell Pond alas it was totally frozen could not see any free water at all ,usually the Swans ,Duck and Gulls coming from the tip  for a bathe keep at least some water open , some of the Gulls looking rather shabby from feeding on god knows what . Brambling very briefly at the feeders and GSW dropped in Water Rail dashed from cover to cover, a few Canada and 2 Greylag dropped in , 30 mallard and a few Teal on the ice.
Heading back home via the coast 200 Pinkfeet in a roadside field ,hundreds of Gulls scattered around the fields Redshanks , Dunlin  and a few Golden Plover also.There is a lot of rough edge to these fields which must attract Larks & Buntings  but viewing is very difficult .
