Hi all – it’s been a while! Spent the day out with my brother doing some of our usual sites. Managed to pick up a single Hawfinch at Braxted Park. Lots of Common Buzzards showing well today there as well.
Had a wander around Shut Heath Wood but unfortunately didn’t manage to find the Lesser-spotted Woodpecker. We did however find Treecreeper and a calling Nuthatch. We then moved onto Abberton Reservoir, where we found a couple of Goosander, and one of the Scaup that has been there for quite a while. Unfortunately we didn’t find either the White-fronted geese or the Firecrest that has been near the Centre. Not a bad day out, given the weather conditions.
