Ashleworth Ham, and a New Garden Tick

Saturday 11th October 2008
Another warm, sunny day, and a visit to Ashleworth Ham this morning produced 12 Snipe, 105 Teal, 17 Wigeon, three Pintail, two Gadwall, eight Mallard, 20 Lapwings, a Heron and four Buzzards. No sign of the Great Grey Shrike or of a Red-throated Pipit noted in the hide log-book for 7/10/08.

In the garden this afternoon a Green Woodpecker was a great garden tick, also a Great Spotted Woodpecker was seen by Linda this morning, and a Coal Tit was the first seen coming to my feeders for a couple of years.
