Not Frozen but still Freezing
Despite the 9oC temperatures this morning, the brisk SE breeze was keeping things on the chilly side. Andy and me checked out the roadside fields at Slimbridge WWT this morning, where 400+ White-fronted Geese (above) were grazing, along with a Brent Goose. Mark reported five Bean Geese on the Tack Piece there. A visit to Sharpness afterwards produced a Goldcrest, a Peregrine, a Sparrowhawk, 13 Wigeon and five Redshanks. This afternoon a Stoat and a Goldcrest were near Hardwicke Farm, Hardwicke.
