10 Nov 2010 - The End of a Winters Day - Leo pic

couple of hours on the patch after work

nice selection - lots of thrushes dashing about obviously fresh in, as were 2 Woodcock in open areas,

5 Jay together were a good local count.

Redwings enjoyed the late afternoon sunshine with a couple singing from the tops of the Hawthorns.

A small skein of Pinks went over as a Little Owl began to call in the distance.

As the sun dipped, so did the temperature - though mitts & dut & winter coat all very effective.

A Long-eared came to the edge of the roost @ 16:20 & was out shortly afterwards.

After trying for a few thrushes it set out, following the hedgelines, continuing on drifting to & fro, before ghosting away out of sight.
