Bramblings at Coach Road

The small group of half a dozen Bramblings seem to be in the same patch of dead leaves on the track, most days. Having a good root around, and tricky to photograph !
A Treecreeper gave excellent views nearby, and there were also Nuthatches, Song Thrushes, Redwings, a GSW, a Green Woodpecker and Goldcrests about.

Hi Mick/Kath. This week's Green 'Pecker was yaffling in the field behind Hoyle House Farm - next to Catherine Slack, Hove Edge.
The more regular/reliable one has been in the field at Sutcliffe Wood Lane - the back road between the Dusty Miller, Hove Edge and the Travellers at Hipperholme.
It's been in the field directly opposite a large house called 'Wood Royde'.
Listen out for Buzzards around as well !
Hope that helps.
Mike
