A freezing cold day with an overnight dusting of snow - not what I was expecting! At least it was bright & sunny. As I was scanning through the ducks from the hide, Andrew Verrall arrived to say he'd just seen a Tawny Owl roosting in East Marsh. We went out together and he showed me the bird, it was sitting right out in the open in the sunshine, a lovely bird and a nice addition to my patchlist. There were up to 2 birds sitting in the same area last year so it was good to know they're still around.
Very little else seen though, a flyover Jackdaw and a handful of Fieldfares & Redwings.
