Winter Sun

Sunday 4th February 2007
Another frosty morning but without the fog, and me and Andy headed for Sharpness. We got tantalising glimpses of the male Black Redstart before it disappeared for a while, so we went to the picnic spot to stare at the river for a bit. Not much doing there, so back round to the docks where the Black Redstart was now performing around Severnbank House. A quick stop at Slimbridge gave us good views of a Cetti's Warbler at Zeiss Hide, and there was an early Oystercatcher on South Lake. Six Redwings with some Song Thrushes in the overflow car park showed up nicely in the sun.

In the afternoon, I encountered 10 Red-legged Partridges along the lane from Elkstone near Colebourne (pics: Paul Masters).
