Sunshine and Showers

Sunday, December 22nd 2013

Dark clouds, heavy showers, very cold strong winds and blue skies were the order of the day.   The reeds were bending in the wind.  Not even the sticklebacks were seen in the pond. The Greater Spearwort flower is still hanging on!

Heavy rain has filled the streams, ponds and lake.  

the lake and weir

Redwings were seen feeding amongst the trees still laden with berries, on the far side of the lake, whilst Mallard, Moorhen and a Heron were seen on the lake.

Trees by the lake

Flocks of Fieldfare were flying around the reserve.  In the back garden, Great Spotted Woodpeckers were having a little difficulty feeding from the containers of fat.  Bullfinches were enjoying the food in the hoppers and Coal Tits were flying onto the seed feeders.
