At a very cold Tyttenhanger this am, with water levels as high as I have seen, and very wet under foot!

A GREEN SANDPIPER on a scarce area of mud, 4 visiting Greylag Geese, Ruddy Duck, 250+ Lapwing and one Kingfisher. Not much else of note on the water but good numbers of birds in the 'Tree Sparrow' hedge.

At Willows Farm: Failed to locate a single Brambling amongst c100 Chaffinch, c40 Redwing and c40 Skylark on the 'Amazing Maize'.

The natural pond that is in the field at the rear of the farm car park is nicely topped up with water and looks very good for any unexpected visitor!! (Remember the 3 Common Crane and Bewick's Swan last year)! And the waders that were seen there. Not bad for such an exposed, featureless area of ground.

Roll on Spring!!
