Another dull grey cold day. I had intended going further afield but it seemed a waste of petrol so I went to the Forest.
Lots of common birds about saw quite a few Woodpeckers (Green and Great Spot), lots of Blue Tits (mostly in twos!), loads of Chaffinches a long tail tit and goldfinch flock. Still plenty of Redwings.
The lake had Mallards, Gadwall, Greylags, Teal, Pochard, Tufties and a lovely Great Crested Grebe coming into breeding plumage.
My highlight bird was a Nuthatch. It was drumming away and it looked so pretty!
As I headed back to the car flakes of snow fell but it amounted to nothing.
No bird photos but....
