Carlton Marsh

There is very little to see at the moment as all the water areas are frozen over. The Whooper Swan spends most of the day feeding on Oil Seed Rape and appears to be thriving. The temperature in the car park this morning was -6c at around 9am, the coldest overnight temperature so far this winter. The cold is starting bite now with Robins practically feeding from the hand, one did the other day. There are at least 100 Redwings around especially in the car park.

Elsewhere there were c100 Redwings and Fieldfares on Station Road, Cudworth and 2 Peregrines were on the chimneys at Ardagh Glassworks at Monk Bretton.

35 Redwings and a Song Thrush were at Littleworth Park, Monk Bretton along with a Green Woodpecker and 1 Linnet (Chris Parkin).
