Eye-wateringly cold over the mosses this afternoon, and largely quiet too.
Took a look behind Bescar Station, but just Grey Herons, Stonechat, Red Legged Partridge, and one or two groups of Whoopers and Pinkies heading over to the Mere.
Gave the latter a blast of Sigur Ros as they flew over, but they seemed unimpressed by their fellow countrymen/women.
Station Lane on Plex had 50+ Fieldfare, and three Buzzards.
One or two mega-flocks of Woodpigeons, each made up of several hundred birds on Plex today.
Big grazing herd of Pink Feet there, perhaps 2,500 birds, with small groups coming in from Carr Moss all the time.
Checked 'em all and got nothing but Pinkies - but having seen Phil Smith's comment on the previous entry, all the goodies were obviously with the flock he was checking out Altcar way - goose chasing can be so frustrating!
One or two Meadow Pipits about and Linnets, but when the shooters arrived after partridge/pigeons, all the geese cleared off to drop down onto Carr Moss to the north.
Mighty impressive watching then coming into land there.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
