      I think the feeding station will be busy tomorrow morning (chilly night) so if anyone wants to meet me there / help me get accurate counts I’ll be there 10 til 11.

      Pink-footed Goose 1000 on drumlins (in A6 E best viewed from Willow Lane at foot of Cleveland Drive). In terms of oddities I could find only a aberrantly pale one and another with orange legs. But I had limited time so could well have missed something like a bean.

            A little later than your visit we saw 1 Greenfinch in the birches near the feeding station. And then wheeling over the trees of Aldcliffe Hall Drive was a (mixed?) flock of about 50 thrushes – mainly Redwings. Walking on, The Flood hosted a gathering of about 100 Teal.
