-6 Not So Good For Birding

The plan this morning was for a wander in Savernake. I woke up to a clear calm morning which was good. What wasn’t so good was the temperature. The car was showing -6 when I arrived in Savernake. Because of this there weren’t as many birds around as I had expected. On my way along the Grand Avenue a couple of Pheasants were on the road and a Jay flew across. I walked in two different areas and themost common species seen was Blue Tit with a lot of small flocks around. Best of the rest was a single Goldcrest, three Song Thrushes, nine Redwings, five Nuthatches and two heard only Great Spotted Woodpeckers. Back in Chiseldon one Little Owl was sunning itself. Also seen was a Kestrel and a small flock of Redwings.
