Saturday morning football was called off due to a frozen pitch so I wanted a replacement for watching the lad play football, West hide Tiitersworth sorted. I was hoping the Bitten was still around but it looked like it had departed. Plenty of Wigeon around the whole place at the moment and small Teal flocks making up the numbers. Goosanders seem to be on the increase with a few dotted around the water. A dozen or so snipe dozed at the edge of the conservation pool. The feeding station held the usual crew the decreasing Willow Tit seems to be doing well at Tittesworth. At least 4 between the two bird tables. Siskin and Redpoll were feeding in the trees by the main entrance and were joined by winter thrushes.
Sunday I got a call of a Brent Goose there but commitments meant today was the earliest I could get. I did think it would stick now it had made pals with the local Canada's. Not a lot was different than Saturday bar the goose so I headed to the hills mainly for a change of scenery and it was looking quite festive with a good covering of snow. Corvids Buzzards Thrushes and Lapwing were all noted but didn't travel far off the main roads
