Around Quedgeley

Friday 24th - Sunday 26th December 2010

Two Bramblings were a garden highlight on Friday (below); other visitors to my 'grounds' included a Redwing and a Pied Wagtail (next photo).

Today, a Boxing Day walk in the snow around Quedgeley produced a Little Egret; initially at midday between Dimore Brook and Clearwater wetland, in the stream, but later flushed by passers-by and eventually settling in the stream north of Clearwater by the footbridge. It fed here quite happily and was still there at 1.30pm despite passing walkers, their dogs, and joggers (top photo and below).

Significant numbers of Redwings (below) and Fieldfares (bottom photo) are on the estate and have been for the last few days, feeding particularly on Cotoneaster and Pyracantha berries.
