I had a gorgeous lunchtime today in Winchester, with a lovely stroll over to Winnall Moors. Eating a hot lunch outside on a crisp, sunny winter’s day is one of my favourite things. The day was made even more special with a tiny bird bouncing in and out of an ivy covered tree. Keeping my binoculars firmly focussed whilst it bobbed about confirmed my suspicions- I had spotted a Goldcrest! A fantastic start to the February list and a highlight at the end of my working week.
Its rather cold, and whilst we were planning a big day out tomorrow to WWT Slimbridge, this may well be cancelled because of the snow. We’ll have a birdy day somewhere, just yet to be decided! In the mean time, here’s a video that made me smile of a frozen lake and ducks at Slimbridge. Enjoy….
On another note, we are officially over 1 month into the big year. January totals to come from us both soon.
