Once I'd got my Nuthatch and Treecreeper fix I pitched up at the recently vandalised Rufford Hide at Mere Sands Wood and spent a bit of time watching the Goosanders today.
Good numbers as usual in winter, with seven plus fine males, although they were a bit too fast and shiny in the sun for my digiscoping abilities.
Lots of fishing, when the flock looked like a group of dolpins surfacing and diving at speed on the calm, green water, and some of the males were displaying, their bottle green buoffants rising and falling, cool.
Perhaps fewer passerines in the woods compared to my pre-Christmas visit, but stiil a superb site for a winter walk.
Male Blackcap still at the feeders at Dempsey Towers today.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
