There was a big dump of snow yesterday and through last might meaning yet another slow weekend's birding.
I had a long walk today around town looking for something interesting, waxwings perhaps or maybe crossbills but there were none of either species. There were still lots of Goosander on the river and a Peregrine resting atop one of the communications towers but not much else except this small flock of Long Tailed Tits.
Very difficult to photograph: small and very active and even when they sit still there is usually a branch in the way.
Yesterday was a write off, between the blizzards we managed to feed the tame tits and nuthatches at Onuma.
On the way back home in Ono we saw a White Tailed Eagle and a flock of 20 or so Bullfinch but the driving snow made photos impossible.
Glad I didn't get up to watch the Liverpool v West Brom game.
