Back to the Patch
Two days without visiting the patch and I sort of missed it!! and I think that's sort of worrying! Anyway this morning was again windy but dry, Siskins and Redwings were heard throughout the visit as were a couple of singing Song Thrushes, I headed passed the lake and into the woods, there were loads of Blue Tits and a few Long Tailed, I did heard one Marsh Tit a Jay as well as couple of Treecreepers. Then a familiar honking call was heard as a CANADA GOOSE (71) flew over, my first new species on the patch since Jan. 25th. It was still a struggle to find much this morning but a Yellowhammer came up out of the winter wheat, I also stood and watched as a Skylark in full song gradually made his way higher and higher unperturbed by the strong wind, most impressive!
