Sylvan Scenes



Dan here. Happy November!

A quick walk around Freeman's Wood today turned into a two-hour session.

Highlights were a party of six Bullfinches (eating rather decayed blackberries), one or possibly two Chiffchaffs, a female Blackcap, two Goldcrests and two Coal Tits.

Thrushes comprised 12 Redwings, two Song Thrushes and 25 Blackbirds.

Also noted were a Jay, a pied pecker, 10 Long-tailed Tits and one each of Sparrowhawk and Kestrel. A skein of 65 Pink-footed Goose headed S overhead.

Freeman's Pools was hosting a Goldeneye (my 1st of the season) plus 15 Gadwall, 12 Little Grebes and a Snipe.
