Thursday: As it was very foggy I took a walk around Newton Wood in the hope of seeing a few woodland species. It turned out not to be too productive, as other than a flock of 7 Bullfinches not much else was seen. There were however an awful lot of tracks in the snow including Badger and Fox.
Down by the river at Newton Blossomville I watched a Heron stuggle to eat an enormous Roach and a Snipe flew up the river.
Friday: A brief look at Tongwell revealed the drake Red-crested Pochard was still present along with many Tufted Duck, Pochard, Gadwall, Mallard and Shoveler.
