My first Brambling of the new year was on our feeders this morning along with lots of finches, but only 4 Redpolls in the mob.
Then took a walk round to Lee Dam this afternoon. 2 Mistle Thrushes in the churchyard at Lumbutts, a Great Spotted Woodpecker in Shaw Wood and 14 Siskin on the catkins at Lee Dam. The dam is still frozen over, apart from the area where they broke the ice yesterday for the annual new year swim which seems to get later and later into the new year. No ducks on the water though.
