So its your birthday, where do you go to make it special? I know just the place, the sewage outfall at Hams Hall, at least its got running water and handy for the river. It also is a good place for birds in a freeze up. Up to 10 Bullfinches, 3 Chiffchaff, 5 Grey wagtail, a good number of Goldcrest and Long tailed tits, 2 Green Sandpiper and a Common Snipe were seen as well as Dave Hutton and Richard Dawkins. Moving on to Ladywalk I met big lister and old time friend Alan Emery from Ashby we had a good chat but didnt see much except Steve Cawthray and a Water Rail - both of which were year ticks.
