5th March 2006
Coppice Pond was frozen this morning but not totally. In the little bit of water that wasn't frozen a male Wigeon was swimming around with the Mallards. I presume this is the male from a nearby collection and is the same bird that arrived last winter for a short while.
The woods close to Coppice Pond were alive with the sound of Siskins singing and plenty of the usual suspects, Nuthatches, woodpeckers drumming, Robins and Wrens singing alongside Hedge Accentors and Thrushes. A few Redpoll were spotted by a friend of mine.
Very little signs of other wildlife about except for the occasional Grey Squirrel.
It was a gorgeous morning despite the lingering snow from Friday 3rd.
