31st January

Sun up this morning. The old saying, "Red sky in the morning shepherds warning", normally means that it is going to rain. Well that didn't happen, maybe it's a warning that snow is on the way.

The Water Rails have taken to their new feeding station. In the last few days B H Gulls and Woodpigeons had been hoovering up all the food scattered in the ditch.

Water Rail: Both still present and at time can be heard calling.
Siskin: Ten birds or more in area 24 and 25.
Goldfinch: The flock seems to be increasing slightly. If you stand with your back to the gate to the wetland pen, area 25. The finches are constantly coming down to drink in amongst the Elm suckers.
