Wed 2nd: John had four Herring Gulls at lunch time but otherwise not a lot. We went for an evening check but it was dead with very few gulls roosting.
Thurs 3rd: John had the flock of 20+ Siskins in the wood which were showing particularly well in the sunshine. Mike also had two Redpoll which is good. On his lunch John had two Linnets too, which were first for the year.

Today I headed out early for a good walk around. There really wasn't much around but it was great watching everything in the early morning sun preparing for spring. A Willow Tit made a very brief appearance in the wood but soon disappeared. Another highlight was watching two Treecreepers displaying and creeping in and out of peeling bark on a dead tree. I assume they were looking for a suitable nesting site but they may have just been searching for food.
