Eldernell

It was a brilliantly clear morning at Eldernell... but with the northerly wind, absolutely freezing. Well, very cold indeed. Pretty quiet though (it tends to be better in the afternoons), but a glorious morning.

After I'd topped up the feeders, one of the highlights was to count a minimum of seven Tree Sparrows.


A beautiful Short-eared Owl flapped its way eastwards - after being flushed by the Pheasant shoot - and a flock of Fieldfares gobbled up berries in the hedge by the counter drain.
