By eck it were cold out there today! but the dedication of the intrepid birder etc,etc. At Broomy croft Kingsbury it was necessary to pick up yards of tangled disgarded fishing line before doing any birding. Perhaps its not so surprising that at least one Canada goose hobbling round the car park has only got one foot. The Oystercatcher squadron, comprising 4 birds, were practicing their close formation flying routines, while at Cliff pool a single Little ringed Plover was seen in flight but could not be relocated on the ground. 6 Common Snipe also seen. Moving on to Coton a Yellow legged Gull was present mid afternoon but nothing 'out of the ordinary' was seen at Shustoke, although it was quite a quick scan in the biting wind - I had a date with a hot cup of Tea.
