I dragged myself out of bed this morning and headed to Hatfield Forest for the last time this year.
Woodland birds seen included Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Nuthatch, Marsh Tit and Fieldfare. The partially frozen lake had the usual Mallards, Coots, Moorhen, Canada Geese, Black Headed Gulls and a pair of Great Crested Grebes (I presume one of the breeding pairs). These were joined by Tufties, Gadwall, Shoveller, Pochard and Teal. Duck variety is always greater in winter.
I do like the first Mallard pic.
