2nd January

Happy New Year!
It was my first proper chance to get out today on a glorious winter’s morning…

Pick of the birds was undoubtedly a nice skein of 60 Pinkfooted Geese flying west along the river

Another group of Pinks flew over the house this evening.
The river itself was quiet with this Little Grebe the only bird other than the usual Moorhens and Mallard...

In the Magic Garden there were two Kingfishers, small numbers of Reed Buntings…

And it reaffirmed its place as the best site for Bullfinches in the parish..

In all today I recorded 51 species , not a bad start to the year. Talking of which I finished last year on 112 species, exactly the same as 2015. 


  1. Very nice start to the year!

  2. Hi Pam, yes, just need to find Waxwings now as they seem to be in every local village but Ainderby!
