4th February 2009

I went to Earlswood during the late afternoon. After all the snow we've had recently, much of the ground was covered with the stuff but the lakes didn't have much ice covering them. The most notable birds at the lakes were 1 Pochard and 10+ Tufted Ducks. An unusally large number of birds were seen at the horse pastures near the canal feeder along Valley Road, including 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker, 4 Meadow Pipits, 9+ Redwings, 10 Starlings, 2 Chaffinches, 6+ Goldfinches, 4 Greenfinches and 2 Siskins.
