Wednesday 4th December

Finally a day off work, that I'm not called in to do overtime. So time to hit the patch.

Weather:- After a dull start, blue sky appeared and sunshine. 

Woods:- The usual suspects - blue/great tits, long tailed tits, blackbirds, robins, wrens, etc. 

Reservoir:- 59 black-headed gulls, 2 little grebes, sub-adult mute swan, great crested grebe, coots and mallards. Grey wagtail messing in guttering of the keepers house, then flew off.

Netherton Hill:- carrion crows, magpies, more woodpigeons. Redwings have arrived, grey heron on pools bottom of the hill. Bullfinches around the edge by the lane. 2 buzzards soaring fairly low and a female kestrel.

The autumn colour was stunning today, as the sun came out. Still quite a few leaves on the tress.

Then on tabletop, lots of fallen leaves, showing oak galls and droplets of rain.
