Thurs 25th Feb

Another image of a Greenland White fronted Goose but with it facing into the driving snow which persisted for most of yesterday. Today it has been slightly warmer, so it was rain, but this evening it is falling as sleet!
Our friends had a count of almost 400 Golden Plover in 3 different fields this afternoon between Coull and Ballinaby, including a few with black chest/belly to be seen.
With this prolonged cold snap continuing, the bird table has been busy, still no Siskin, although friends up the back of Bridgend had seen one at their feeder at the weekend and there was 4 seen today at another garden set of feeders not far from where they live. This afternoon, there were 14 Pheasants out on the grass here at home.
