20th February 2009
Apologies for the lateness of these last three posts, if anyone follows this blog closely. I went on my bike to Earlswood again during the afternoon. A large flock of Redwings and Fieldfares were seen in a field near Earlswood Railway Station (the same area where Reg saw them on the 15th). A Bullfinch was heard next to the station, and another was heard near the M42 along Forshaw Heath Lane. At the sewage treatment works I saw 1 Grey Wagtail, 2 Pied Wagtails, 1 Robin, 1 Redwing and 8+ Chaffinches, and a Goldcrest nearby. Passing the lakes, I saw an adult Mute Swan (newly arrived I assume) and 5 Tufted Ducks at Windmill Pool, and 3 more Tufted Ducks at Engine Pool.
