Had a good look for yesterday's Bishy Waxwings this morning to no avail, though a Mistle Thrush in our tiny garden sitting on the bird table I erected yesterday was quite cool. A few Fieldfares around and Grey Wag over the sewage works calling.
Went up to Askham Bog for a brief visit with Sol. Lots of activity here - punters and birds. Not much doing though one calling Willow Tit was a yeartick, plus Sparrowhawk, a few Marsh Tits, Siskins and Treecreepers. Oh, and a Jay.
On to North Duffield to see if the gulls would roost. Whilst waiting, had a look through the ducks: the Aythya hybrid was showing well with the Tufties and the drake Scaup was still asleep with the Pochards. An immature female Peregrine stirred things up a bit late on and plenty of large gulls came in. I couldn't pick out anything better than a first winter Lesser Black-back sadly. The regular pair of Bewick's Swans came in on cue at 4pm and spent a bit of time on the flood before flying over to the river to roost.
