Well seen nowt, suppose I'll have to kick up onto the Charlaws
AH, better success by the old monastry the list grew, a charm of Goldfinch, Bullfinch x 5, Redwing x 3, Mistle thrush and a pair of Nuthatch, got a glimpse of my female GS Woodpecker which I spotted about 2 weeks ago, come on lass find your man.
After leaving the Monastry area I kicked into the old clay pits, forgot how wet and boggy this place is, yeap on my backside and sliding, however some good signs of plantlife were emerging, might be a regular plant spot in a couple of months. Kicked on again, around the Charlaws, saw a couple of Jays, Crows and BH Gulls no sign of any Curlews or Buzzards.
Re entered Sacriston woods when a lovely Treecreeper came into view, same place as i was watching it last summer can only summise it's the same bird, chuffed with that.
And thats my Monastry Mooch
four greys seen in Sacriston woods, this one taking time out
