19th January

My first walk of the year along the river. Despite the frost it was very quiet with no waders and only four Goosander, Grey Wagtail and a distant flying flock of 70 Golden Plover to add to the year list.
In the fields there have been good numbers of Fieldfares in recent days, they seem to move to ground feeding after Christmas even if there are good numbers of berries still in the hedgerows.

At Sedgefield the geese are still present in good numbers but the Barnacle was the only non-Greylag present but they were joined now by groups of Curlew. Eventually these all flew off and coalesced into a single group in the Bottom Fields, I tallied up a decent count of 106 birds…
