Still Looking Good

It was beautiful on Rawcliffe Moss in the late afternoon sunshine, but unfortunately I didn't have time for a wander round. It was yet another 'splash and dash' of seed visit. As I walked down the hedgerow 12 Fieldfares flew in to feed on the hawthorn berries and I had just had a flock of 30 feeding in a pasture as I drove onto the moss. The Fieldfares at the feeding station were accompanied by eleven Blackbirds and a single Redwing.

Tree Sparrows numbered 226 with 21 Chaffinch and a single Yellowhammer. On the way back to the car a Great Spotted Woodpecker called from Curlew Wood and 400 Black-headed Gulls fed in the flooded field.

I just had a quick glance at the weather forecast and it is looking good for some ringing at weekend, so fingers crossed.
