A pretty easy WeBS count this morning as once again Birstall Meadows was 99% frozen. Still it was, shockingly, the first time I’d been on the patch this year.
A little later, Leigh and I went for a walk around Watermead Country Park South. A fair bit about but too many walkers for a great number of species. Most significant things were birds we didn’t see… no Chaffinch but worryingly I have yet to see a Reed Bunting this year.
