Freezing cold day...
Another bitterly cold day with the wind chill making it feel even colder, started off with this group and then moved on to see a flock of over 50 shelduck this is a common roost that I started watching last year when the numbers were even bigger.
Still got a good sized group of whoopers hanging around and lots of distant pintail and pochard.
pictures heavily cropped and just for the record.
As I was watching these from a distance I had a Tawny owl constantly calling could not spot it but at 11.30 in the morning it was a bit unusual.
Finished off with a spot the GSW competition.
Things are really starting to move in the valley with huge bird numbers coming in on a daily basis, big numbers of tufted duck,teal and wigeon.
