Local Birding

There had been a Great Northern Diver nearby for quite a while so I had a stroll over. Of course the bird had flown (or at least wasn't seen by me!) and the grey skies weren't conducive for photos! Still I did see Goldeneyes and Goosanders which were nice. Other good stuff were Kingfisher, Redwing, Fieldfare and Great Spotted Woodpecker. It was interesting to see a mix of Great Crested Grebes some in winter plumage and others in breeding plumage.

Given the lack of pictures here is a Blue Tit.







Back to work tomorrow. Two day weeks I can live with!
