Out sharp with the weather cold dull and very calm considering the weather report said gales. Three Lesser Redpoll were in with the Goldfinches but not much else of note with only a smattering of Redwing and Fieldfare.
I disturbed this Deer at breakfast
Last night I was stood on Bills balcony (as the bridge next to the flagpole has been re-named) watching Hen Harriers and Short eared Owls (in my dreams) when there was a plop into the ditch behind me. Hopeful of a Water Vole I waited and after some squeaking a Vole appeared but way too small to be Ratty. Nice to know they can swim although if they couldn't they'd be in deep do, do on the Carr.
