A frosty start, possibly the coldest day of the winter so far. Started at Acaster floods where a dapper pair of Wigeon were the only new birds.

On to Askham Bog to lead a walk. Usual stuff present the highlight being my first ever Kingfisher at the Bog by the pond briefly.  The Woodcock was in it's usual spot and there were plenty of Siskins and Lesser Redpolls around.

Another look at the floods late afternoon revealed a slight increase in Aythyas wiyh 86 Tufties and 16 Pochards. The pair of Wigeon were still there.
