Local New Year update

Rawcliffe Lake is still pretty quiet at the moment although one of the female Goosanders from last year remains, a Great Crested Grebe returned this week but during a brief cold snap when the Lake froze overnight the second Coot departed, fingers crossed it returns before Spring, no Winter Finches as yet just Goldfinches.

I managed to get out for a couple of hours this afternoon so nipped over to Askham Bogs to see what was about, fairly quiet really although a pair of Buzzards put on a good show, a single Willow Tit paused briefly then was gone and there was a good selection of stuff where seed had been put out.
