The gate was open when I got there because some tree work was being done so no battling with the combination lock.I headed straight for the River Pool hide area and spent over an hour waiting patiently but saw nothing except for a couple of Chiffchaffs and certainly no LS Woodies.So as it was brightening up I headed for the Feeder hide.
I met up with Malcolm Goode and Tom Melton in the hide who had set up things nicely.Always nice to meet up with these two especially as they are great photographers.
The Lesser Redpolls were there showing well but no sign of the Mealy Redpoll that has been seen there lately.
I was pleased a Siskin turned up because I've struggled to see them this year and hadn't got any decent shots.
A discussion took place when a Willow/Marsh Tit turned up as to what it was.I couldn't enter the discussion as I'd forgotten how you told them apart.It was eventually thought it was a Willow Tit but checking later at home it does have a glossy head so a Marsh Tit?????
