On a walk back from town, via Cradle End, Green Street and Muggin's Wood I came across a most unusual sight. This was in the form of a kingfisher flying along the ditch in Green Street. Not a place I have associated with this species. My 5th record of this bird within the parish. Far too quick for a photo, unfortunately.
Also on offer was a nuthatch in the large oak tree on Brick Kiln Hill, a black headed gull heading north, several fieldfare and redwings and a solitary long tailed tit.
Snowdrops were in evidence along Green Street, shown here, but nothingelse to encourage me into thinking it is yet spring.
Another attachment shows a collared dove on lines, also in Green Street.
