Sunday 05.02 NHGP

As forecast awoke to 4-6 inches of snow and a welcome visitor to the garden a Reed Bunting. A walk down the lakes was on the cards. Lunsford Lane feeders did not produce Redpoll or Siskin and other than Widgeon on Tesco this was quiet probably due to the amount of people and dogs out enjoying the snow. Bittern was not showing and that end of the lake was frozen anyway. Here we joined Phil Sharp and managed to see a sole Brambling in Trees adjacent to Bittern area. Over the Railway and along the "new" path to sunken marsh and the river lots of Teal present.
A visit to the Bucket gave views of a fly over flock of unidentified waders.Brooklands gave up a Goldeneye and Pintail. Mill stream path did not show the goosander.Still no Chiffchaff but total now 71
