Most of today's sightings came from nearby farm land with up to 30 Redwings, 14 Fieldfares, 10 Pied Wagtails, 2 Meadow Pipits, 20 Linnets and 7 Mistle Thrushes. 

The scrapes were iced over again, but a Little Egret, 2 Canada Geese and 9 Herring Gulls managed to break a bit open. Elsewhere 10 Lesser Redpolls were feeding in Silver birch trees (K. Bannister/JP/R. Laverack).

The male Blackcap visited Dave Smith's Carlton garden feeder again.
