Tittersworth & the Moors

The weather was pretty horrific this morning near gale force wind and very little light. I managed kill a couple of hours at the above. The Moors as expected was devoid of all bird life but i did manage get within 20 yards of some Red Deer, I tried lift my compact for a snap but the slightest move saw them heading over the moor. Tittersworth was getting battered by winds but the reserve was pretty sheltered so a few Pochard & Tufties sought sanctuary there. I replenished all the feeding station and sat back out of the wind to practice a bit of digyscoping. The main Lake held 9 Goosanders within scope range and a few Teal. A scan through the gulls saw 4 Commons. Around the feeding station plenty of activity LT Tits, Redpolls, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Willow Tit and plenty more within snapping range. Buzzard & Kestrel the only birds of prey but the Peregrines have been about. The only other birds to note were 2 Red Grouse at Gunnhill & Raven
