Thursday 4th January 2018, 11:30 to 13:30I managed to find a brighter spell in an otherwise grey, chilly and blustery day. There were several Robins singing in their territories around the park. More Grey Squirrels than usual were chasing about on the ground and in the trees. A Goldcrest was flitting in one of the large yew trees with some Blue Tits and a Song Thrush. There are still Redwings. But you have to wait for a lull in the dog walker traffic to see them.Some of the Canada Geese are pairing up and one hardy couple were even mating. A Cormorant flew in a stayed for a short while.In Grattons Park there were two Mistle Thrushes again as well as several more Redwings and Greenfinches.A full list of the birds seen is given in the Bird Table.
