Water Rail and Woodcock.


Water Rail

Reed Bunting
Fox - Coatham Stobb
Song Thrush - Back Garden

Went for a walk to Saltholme today in the bitterly cold wind to try and catch up with the Bittern but failed dismally. There were a couple of Brambling feeding on the fruit outside the centre and a G.S. Woodpecker along with two Water Rail showing very well at the Wildlife Watchpoint. Along the Zinc Works road there were 3 Woodcock feeding along the fence by the stream although by this time the light was beginning to fade otherwise the shots would have been excellent. Yesterday we went for a walk with Ellie in her new Christmas coat around Coatham Stobb but it was very quiet apart from a lone Fox.
