I set off at 9.00am, with a route planned that would encompass Muggins Wood, Millennium Wood, Bury Green and then on to Tescos and back via Green Street and Millfield Lane. In all 28 species recorded. A solitary redwing was seen on the snow at Muggins. This is the first record of this migratory thrush this year. Usual finches and tits were abundant whilst an overhead northerly herring gull was a little more unusual. Fieldfares were in good numbers and also, to round of the thrush family, a mistle thrush, song thrush and numerous blackbirds were observed. Several great spotted woodpeckers were seen as too were a solitary sparrowhawk and the pied wagtail depicted here. A good walk in bright yet snowy conditions. The second day of school closure.
