December 3rd: Moor Lane Bridge, Naburn
A walk both sides of the bridge along the Transpennine Trail. Regular thrushes and tits seen but no bramblings. Nuthatch and coal tit photoed on baited fence post.
December 4th: in the garden
Sparrowhawk caught a sparrow outside our kitchen window. Quickly grabbed Sheila's phone...through glass...
December 6th: Swillington Ings
Colour photo into the sun. Shann House bridge.
From the birders' viewpoint near Shann House Bridge, Swillington Ings. An arctic skua was on a spit near a group of cormorants.
Eventually it flew to chase a gull round the site. Everything flew up.
