At present I am supposed to be on a boat in Wick harbour. As you may notice I'm not. This has a lot to do with the ridiculous amount of snow and very low temperatures (Wick is only 30 miles from -20 Altnahara). Eventually I decided it was untenable to even try to get there and we gave up. 8 inches of snow here. Snow day today so I have been largely playing with my daughter and the kids in the close. I have had a interesting birds in the garden though. Finally got my garden tick of Great Spotted Woodpecker
although it didnt come to the feeders it passed along the treeline at the end. Also had Fieldfare
in the garden rather than overhead. Black-headed
and Common Gull
have both touched down in the garden. Long-tailed Tits
are sporadic visitors to the garden and very rare on the feeders so that when 9 birds arrived on the peanuts at dusk today it was tres pleasant. A daily large passage of corvids to roost is going on from 3pm at the moment so the garden is interesting for a change. Plenty of Chaffinches
knocking about at mo so hopeful for in garden Brambling or Redpoll.
