Approx 1050 hrs. I knew the rain was due but still opted for the misery.
Good count of Goldcrest with a couple of Coal & Blue Tit thrown in. Along with this bunch were a pr Treecreeper that I was able to watch for almost 2 mins. These were warm brown birds, no hint of cold grey or extensive whites at all.
My status as a second rater is secured in perpetuity. While another birder present at the same time saw both Kingfisher and Dipper, yet again I failed dismally. Of course the few small gulls present were great compensation (yeah right).
c45 Canada were seen leaving the NE shore.
Raggalds sports field still sports good counts of Lapwing and gulls. c40 Goldfinch were hanging around garden feeders in Blind Lane Bradshaw.
