I have cheated a bit and have used the old Warwickshire boundaries to include Knowle because that's where I live and to include Marsh Lane which is my nearest local patch.
My start has been poor with only 35 ticks so far but it began well with a lesser Redpoll visiting the garden on Saturday morning.
A visit to Marsh Lane on Sunday morning was also a bit disappointing with the pools still frozen over but I did get a Tree Sparrow on the Oak Hide feeders.
There were several Gulls on the ice some of them immature which gave me a problem with ID so if you can help please do so.One of the immature Gulls was bigger than a nearby LBB Gull so a GBB Gull? Is that a Herring Gull at the back of one of the shots?
