Frozen out at Salford Priors

Drake Pintail on the ice

Week commencing 18th January saw a dramatic drop in temperatures with the main pit and Pophills being frozen. When there is a deep freeze you often get wildfowl displaced and this theory proved correct as I observed two Pintail fly in to the main pit to join three Wigeon. The first Siskin was recorded in the plantation (may have been two) whilst the feeding station is proving very popular with the Great, Blue and Coal Tits. Nothing different as yet………

Our local Kestrel kindly posed to enable me to get some nice shots whilst the Robin was very keen to show off at the same time.
