love to see geese flying into land on the lake.
Nice to get close to the wigeon.
Onto Linton pools,another area I love to visit,lots of female bullfinch,not one male,a few juvenile goldfinch blackbirds,but no redwing or fieldfare,sill plenty of time to see these over the winter.At the front of the hide we got some good views of mute swans in the still waters of the lake.
The so graceful swan.
Cresswell was as it always,plenty to see,we didn't spend to much time there as the light is so short at this time of the year and we try to pack as much into the day as we can.but what we did see was worth the visit,I counted 26 snipe,that is the most I've see at one time.dunlin,teal,wigeon 5 whooper swan on the fare bank maganser,lapwing,redshank,and a lot more.
A nice little wren
See this lovely little bird on the way into Druridge pools, I'm afraid that all we got to see there apart from one heron and half a dozen tufted duck.
The Hauley rat
This big bugga was at the small hide at hauxley reserve,we went into a few hides but all was very still,nothing to see as the light was well gone,next time we must visit hauxley first.
