Siskins. The Lodge. Feb 2013.

 Plenty of these stunners at The Lodge, and a couple of Bank Voles sharing the spoils of spilt seed with them.

Lesser Redpolls. Feb 2013.

 A selection of Lesser Redpoll images from The Lodge, check out the colouration in the above birds crown feathering. Still sorting through potential Mealy images, these deserve as much space though. More images on my Blog.

Oyc's first to return at Bev's. 18th Feb 2013.

The Shoveler put on a good show all morning, and the first returning waders were a pair of Oystercatchers that took flight North from the north lake at Bev's.

Woke up this morning to a lovely crisp day, decided to try and track down the Mealy & Lesser Redpolls, Siskin and Brambling's at Sandy and the Merlin and Redheads at Broom. Managed to track down 5 of the 6 as I still haven't managed to meet up with the Merlin, still I am not the only one on this quest. When I arrived home, I heard a female arrived at Broom about half an hour after I left Hey Ho!!
