Mixenden Res'r

G N Diver still present this morning. Despite the stormy conditions  the res'r was reasonably sheltered on the west side thanks to the plantation but the weather does not seem to affect the diver anyway.
1 Little Grebe
c70 B H Gulls
25 Common Gulls
2 Great Black-backed Gulls and 17+ Herring Gulls >W - they love moving in this weather !!

I went looking for Woodcock in the plantation without success, its certainly a welly job in there!
1 Chaffinch, 6 Goldcrest, several Blue and Great Tits, 1 Long-tailed Tit and a Nuthatch calling.

About 20 Redwings in the field opposite the ex Hebble Brook pub on the way into Mixy and a Kes just a bit higher up.

That GND is going to be here in the spring if it stays much longer.

I'm wondering if it's stuck, not able to take off over the high banking. Maybe when a good wind blows from a direction other than west it will be on its way.
