Flitwick Moore & Eversholt

A morning out in the field with good friends Mark & Bridget started at Flitwick Moor where we were lucky enough to bump into Lesser Spotted, Great Spotted and Green Woodpecker, Coal, Great, Blue & Long-Tailed Tit, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, loads of Wren setting out there territories, Goldcrest, Robin, about 4-6 Tree Creepers, Buzzard, Magpie, Jay, Crow, Jackdaw, Sparrowhawk, Blackbird, Song Thrush and a possible singing Blackcap.

We then moved on to Eversholt Lake via Westoning where we ran into Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, some possible Mealy mixed in with the flock (as some were very light and grey), Fox, Grey Heron, Roe Deer, Yellowhammer, Sparrowhawk, Goldcrest, 3 pairs of Goosander, Canada Goose, plus 5-6 unusual Hybrids of the same with white heads adult & juv, Maderine, Mallard, Coot, Buzzard, Robin, Wren and Dunnock.

All in all a very good day all-around for sightings, however a bit thin on the ground for any decent photo's, as once again the light was against us. Second Sunday in a row when the promised sunshine has not arrived.
