I was a bit annoyed yesterday when I missed the chance of photographing a Mistle Thrush on the back lawn. Made up for it today though when a Green Woodpecker appeared in the garden. Not a garden first but a very unexpected visitor.

No sign of the Redwing, seen yesterday but encoraging to see 'winter' birds finding their way into the garden
Away from the garden there were a few birds about elsewhere. I walked from Broomey Croft to the north end of Middleton lakes. On Jubilee wetlands there was a single Black tailed Godwit and 15 Golden plovers as well as 2 Stonechats and a Cetti's warbler was heard.
