I added Jay to my 2016 list today, there were at least 5 flitting through the trees and making their harsh alarm call! A couple of Ravens were a treat to see and hear, one was calling as I arrived and was putting my boots on, a good start to my walk! Other highlight species seen were Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Goldcrest, Blue & Great Tit, Robin, Skylark, Fieldfare, Redwing, a few 'small' Starling flocks passed overhead several times, Buzzard and a Nuthatch were heard only. I was hoping for a Yellowhammer sighting here but sadly not today, I shall keep on looking.
Bracket Fungi was to be seen on many of the Silver Birch trees and also plenty of Lichen.
Up, up and away! There were 2 Ravens passing overhead. Superb sightings!
Despite several of these signs along the paths they do not 'cut any ice' with some folk as the evidence was sadly quite clear to see!
